A Sussex teacher facing a child abduction charge has pleaded not guilty.
Jeremy Forrest appeared at Lewes Crown Court via video link.
The 30-year-old, a teacher at Bishop Bell C of E School in Eastbourne, denied child abduction and will stand trial in June.
Mr Forrest, of Chislehurst Road, Petts Wood, south-east London, made no application for bail and was remanded in custody.
He was extradited to the UK after being arrested by police in Bordeaux in September after a European arrest warrant was issued.
He was charged with child abduction on 10 October.
