A teacher cleared of indecently assaulting two young pupils at a comprehensive school has admitted having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

Amy Gehring was acquitted of indecently assaulting two brothers at a Surrey comprehensive where she had worked as a supply teacher. But now the 26-year-old supply teacher from Canada has said that she did sleep with a boy at a previous school in Surrey.

Ms Gehring also said she was too drunk to remember if she had slept with a 15-year-old boy at her last school.

She was cleared by a jury at Guildford Crown Court last month of having sex with two teenage pupils.

After the trial, it emerged that Ms Gehring had been investigated before and been identified as a potential danger to children, before being allowed to work in another school.
