THE supply teacher cleared of indecently assaulting two schoolboys who she was accused of having sex with has admitted sleeping with a 16-year-old pupil at a previous school.

In her first broadcast interview since her acquittal on February 4, Amy Gehring also told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that she was too drunk to remember whether or not she had slept with a 15-year-old boy.

Her admissions will heighten concern about the supervision of supply teachers in Surrey.

Concerns had been raised about her relationships with male students at one school in the county, but she was able to move on to a second, where the allegations which led to her court appearance arose.

Canadian-born biology teacher Miss Gehring (26) said she was embarrassed and ashamed of what she had done, but that the boys involved had understood what was happening.
