Principal suspended over sex tape claim

A head teacher and a colleague at a school in the midst of a "sex tape" controversy have been suspended, its chair of governors has confirmed.

Ysgol Bryn Tawe in Swansea has been besieged by concerns from parents after video footage supposedly filmed inside the school was posted online.

It is claimed the video was recorded outside an office at the school and "sex noises" can be heard from the other side of the door.

The clip has been watched and shared hundreds of times on sites such as Facebook and YouTube.

Although officials have refused to comment on the video's contents, chair of governors Heini Gruffudd issued a statement saying head teacher Graham Daniels and another member of staff had been suspended.

Mr Gruffudd said: "The head teacher and another member of staff are currently suspended and Mr Simon Davies, currently deputy head teacher at the school, will be managing the school for the time being.

"The school is running normally and we won't be commenting further at this time."

The Welsh-medium secondary school has around 750 pupils.
