BRIDGEWATER High School teacher Robert Glew has been suspended after appearing naked on the home page of a naturist website.

The nude picture of the head of modern languages is currently being investigated by education bosses at Warrington Borough Council.

It shows Mr Glew taking part in a skinny dip with other members of British Naturism. He is running along a beach with no clothes on in a group of men and women of various ages.

The organisation declined to comment on the picture.

He has been suspended from the Appleton school as an automatic procedure after the council received complaints.

Pinkai Ghoshal, assistant director of children and young people’s services at Warrington Borough Council, said: “We can confirm the member of staff in question is not in school whilst we carry out a full investigation. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
