Two girls who went missing from Cheltenham yesterday have been found safe and well.

Una Williams, 13, and Shabnam Mohabatzath, 12, had last seen at their home addresses on Wednesday and were believed to have gone to the cinema in Cheltenham.

Telephone contact was made with the girls last night but they had not returned home and it was thought they may have gone to London.

A spokeswoman for Gloucestershire Police thanked those that shared the appeal.
