The evolution of high and low mass planets embedded in turbulent magnetised discs has been studied by means of MHD simulations. For high mass planets, the picture that emerges is similar to that obtained for viscous, laminar disc models. For low mass planets, however, the usual type I migration picture is modified, and the planets undergo a process of stochastic migration. I will present the results of recent simulations, and discuss their broader significance in the context of planet formation.
