A teacher who moonlighted as a stripper and appeared in porn films was reprimanded by the General Teaching Council yesterday but told he could carry on teaching.

Benedict Garrett, 31, was found guilty of professional misconduct. The council heard that the head of personal, social and health education at Beal High School in Ilford, Essex, had been stripping in clubs and worked as a naked butler.

He is not teaching now and the panel said it was confident that Mr Garrett would not repeat his behaviour should he return to teaching.
