Sandwell teacher arrested over 'extreme porn' allegations

Sandwell | News | Published:

Two more men who work with children, including a teacher from Sandwell, have been arrested on suspicion of possessing extreme pornography.

The men, aged 36 and 45, were arrested in Birmingham and Sandwell this morning.

The 36-year-old from Sandwell works as a teacher at Kings Heath Boys College in Birmingham while the 45-year-old is a youth worker in the city.

Police said that their management have been made aware of the arrest as well as the Department for Education. This afternoon, the two men were bailed until April.

The arrests follow the detention of three other men - including a teacher from Wolverhampton - yesterday.

The 31-year-old and two other men aged 36, and 37, from Birmingham were arrested yesterday morning and questioned by detectives from the Public Protection Unit at police stations in the West Midlands.

All three men were later bailed.

The investigation started in April 2013 as a result of an ongoing inquiry into the sharing of extreme pornography.

These inquiries are unconnected to the ongoing Birmingham City Council investigation into the so-called 'Trojan Horse' allegations.
