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."

Everything's going swimmingly for injured cat

A cat that was injured in a car crash in April has taken to hydrotherapy treatment like a fish to water.

Two-year-old Buddy was taken in by the Clay County Cat Care rescue centre after the accident near his home in St Austell. The charity has spent more than £2,000 for his treatment, thanks to donations from all over Cornwall.

It's a common-held belief that cats are afraid of water but Buddy is a bengal and loves the wet stuff.

The charity owner, Leanne Kent, says the water therapy has done wonders for Buddy.

She has filmed Buddy in the pool at Hawksland in Wadebridge. It is usually reserved for horses and dogs.

A story that really has the baa factor

Now lambs are normally associated with Easter but one farm in Cornwall has been blessed with rather a lot of them this Christmas.

The quadruplets came as a surprise at Wendy Eustice's farm in Wadebridge - only three were spotted when the mum had a scan. They are the first foursome to have been born there in 23 years - and another ewe is also expecting quads.

It's thought it might have something to do with the mild climate.

It certainly does seem a little bit magical. No surprise then that Wendy's sons George and Samuel have named the new arrivals after four characters from their favourite Harry Potter books: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Molly.

Here is a short clip of the foursome down on the farm. We challenge you not to say aah... or perhaps baa...
