A former teacher in Bristol has been jailed after admitting making indecent images of scores of children using hidden cameras at a boarding school and another property.

Jonathan Thomson-Glover, 53, who taught at Clifton College, pleaded guilty to 36 counts of making, taking and possessing indecent images of children.

Abuse lawyer Oliver Jeffcott, of Slater and Gordon, who represents one of the victims, said: "My client's family have been in tears after hearing the news that he had pleaded guilty and will be jailed.

"Whilst they are relieved his guilty plea has spared them the trauma of having to give evidence in court, they do not feel that a prison sentence of three years and nine months is sufficient, given the appalling breach of trust."

He added: "These crimes have caused huge distress to pupils over the last 12 months at a time when they should have been free to focus on their exams.Instead, both they and their families have been left distraught by these dreadful offences."

A Devon MP has today promised to investigate why mental health patients are being kept overnight in police cells after the Assistant Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police took to social media highlighting the problem.

Paul Netherton tweeted that once again no beds were available across the region so patients were being held in cells with support from nurses.

Back in November last year ACC Netherton highlighted the same problem when a 16 year old girl suffering from mental health problems was held for two days in a police cell in Torbay, because there was no suitable bed for her to go to.
