Schoolgirls missing for more than a month have been found.

Police issued an appeal last month after Mia Ferguson, 16 and Jade Young, 15, went missing from their homes in Brixton and Hounslow on May 4.

The pair were sighted at a chicken shop in Oval on Friday, May 9, and in Lavendar Hill, Battersea, on Saturday, May 17.

After more than a month of silence the girls' mothers issued an emotional appeal for their return last week.

Police said both girls were found safe and well at an address in Lewisham yesterday.
