VIDEO: Sean Clode caught with abducted girl on Hartlepool beach by police helicopter

This is the moment that a police helicopter caught Sean Clode with a 14-year-old girl he had abducted from Scotland.

The 22-year-old, of Glamis Walk, Hartlepool, can be seen on Crimdon beach. The girl is inside the tent.

The full footage from the police helicopter showed Clode getting out of the tent and putting his trainers on, while the girl, who cannot be named, pulled her dress down.

The next day the girl told police in a recorded interview that she had sex several times that night with Clode in the tent.

But the following month she changed her story and said no sex had taken place in a bid to protect the man with whom she was still infatuated.
