Student Abducted from School in the United Kingdom

British news services are reporting that a female student was forcibly dragged from her school by her ex-boyfriend. Police are searching for both teens and fear for her safety. It is fairly standard for schools in England to be fenced and gated with access control systems due to concerns for school security. This incident demonstrates how easy it can be for students to be abducted from their schools. Fortunately, such incidents are still relatively rare.
