Teachers Face Ban Over Indecent Child Images......Why not Jail?

Anyone cautioned or prosecuted for offences involving indecent images of children in the future will be banned from teaching, the Department for Education has warned.

The announcement was made as Education Secretary Michael Gove comes under pressure to explain why his department approved a decision to allow a teacher who downloaded indecent images of children back into the classroom.

The move sparked widespread condemnation and Mr Gove has now been urged to appear in the Commons to tell MPs why Geoffrey Bettley, 36, was reinstated after police found nearly 200 child abuse images on his computer.
