Ex-maths teacher Martin Goldberg, 46, was found dead at his Essex home just a day after police had spoken to him about claims he bought images of naked teenage boys over the internet.
"He fooled us all. Pupils and staff. He was always friendly with pupils but then all teachers were," the ex-pupil said.

"His life revolved around school. He was an OK teacher, very very involved with ski trips and extra-curricular stuff."
