Middlesbrough Teacher Jailed For Child Abuse Images
A 'highly-respected' teacher has been jailed for 18 months for possessing indecent images of children on a USB stick along with school work.

The married mother got involved in an online relationship with the man who disclosed early on that he was a paedophile.
