A Dutch teenager who ran away from with just 6 and a bag of crisps has been caught 600 miles away in Poland.

Police have been searching for 16-year-old Collin Baker since he set out by bike from his home in Holland.

He had travelled into Germany and across Poland with only a book, a map, some crisps and a bottle of mineral water.

Residents in Przemkow phoned the local police after discovering a boy who "looked lost", and spoke no Polish, at a bus stop.

Police spokesperson Daria Solinska said: "It turned out that the boy had been cycling for six days and had covered 600 miles cycling along small country roads."

Collin told the police he had left home and wanted to go to China because he did not like his mother's new husband.
