A four-year-old girl who went missing with her schizophrenic mother during the summer has been found in Spain, a High Court judge says.

Mr Justice Hayden said on Friday, at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London, that Elliana Shand was safe and well.

The judge had made a number of public appeals for help after Elliana and her mother Jessica Richards, who is in her mid 20s, disappeared.
