The desperate search for twin sisters, Poppy and Lily Myers, has come to an end after they were found on Friday morning. 

The pair, both aged 13, had vanished from Egerton Road, Twickenham on April 3 prompting a hunt for the schoolgirls led by the Met police.

Officers had also requested people share the appeal widely on social media in a bid to track them down. 

On Friday morning, the sixth day since they were last seen, police announced that the pair had been found “safe and well.”
