The wife of Jeremy Forrest, the British teacher who was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison for abducting a 15-year-old schoolgirl after they fled together to France, is seeking a divorce, his sister said Tuesday.
Carrie Hanspaul told ITV's Daybreak programme that Forrest, 30, and his wife Emily had a "very difficult relationship".
"Divorce proceedings are going through, which she initiated," she explained.
A jury on Thursday found Forrest guilty over the episode in which the pair spent seven days on the run, sparking a high-profile international search.
