A woman has been arrested on suspicion of child neglect after police confirmed that three siblings who were missing in Cheltenham have been found safe and well.

Three-year-old Pauly-Boi, five-year-old Jolene and eight-year-old Betsy had been reported missing on Friday following the issue of a court order.

Their mother, Jessica, had been prevented by the order from caring for them - as had the father of the three.

“A woman has been arrested on suspicion of child neglect in connection with the incident and remains in police custody,” Gloucestershire Police said on Sunday.

“Officers would like to thank everyone who shared our earlier appeal or submitted information on the children’s whereabouts.”

No further information has been released about the arrest.
