A mother who was missing for nine days with her sons has been arrested on suspicion of abduction.

Samantha Baldwin, 40, is being questioned by police after she was found with her sons Louis Madge, nine, and Dylan Madge, six, near Ollerton, Nottinghamshire.

They were located in secluded accommodation run by a small holiday business. The owners are assisting officers with their inquiries.

Nottinghamshire Police said: "Officers were given information as a direct result of a nationwide appeal for the location of the boys.

"We would like to thank everyone who shared our messages and to the media for their widespread coverage."

The boys, who disappeared on Monday 27 March, are safe and with child care professionals.

Police said "officers believe this to be a pre-planned attempt to evade authorities".
