A train manager had raised concerns about the child, who they spotted on their service on Saturday.

British Transport Police met the train at Lancaster, and spent two hours with the teenager trying to ascertain their identity after they gave false details.

They discovered the child was missing from Edinburgh and, after carrying out safeguarding checks, the teen was driven back to Scotland.
