TWO SENIOR teachers are beginning jail sentences after admitting assaulting a policeman who reprimanded one of them for urinating in a town centre.

Michael Feeney, 32, and Mark Jones, 28, both heads of department at the Boswells comprehensive school in Chelmsford, Essex, were on their way home from a drinking session when they attacked Constable Matthew Turner in the early hours of one Saturday last December.

Chelmsford magistrates sentenced each defendant to a four-month prison term. But they said the men would serve only two months of their sentences in jail - with the remaining two months being suspended. The court was told that both men would almost certainly lose their jobs at as a result of their conviction.
