Twins snatched from social services by their mother were safe and well in police protection today after being recovered by officers.
Lincolnshire Police said they located four-year-olds Billy Blu and Vixen Rae Francis, who were taken by their mother, Tamara Dyson, from a care centre in Skegness on Thursday, after a "police operation".
Police had feared the mother might have taken the children out of Britain, and possibly brought them to Ireland.
A man and a woman were arrested and were expected to be questioned today.
Social workers were supposed to be monitoring a visit from their grandmother when the toddlers were taken.
