Tributes have been paid to a junior school teacher - described as passionate and encouraging - who died in his sleep hours after allegedly being attacked in a Doncaster nightclub.
24 year old Lewis Siddall, who was a twin, taught PE at Copley Junior school in Sprotborough and today the headmaster said he will be greatly missed by the staff, governors, children and parents.
Detectives started a major investigation after his body was found and a man, arrested over the weekend on suspicion of murder, has been released on bail. David Hirst reports
The Head Teacher of Copley Junior School has paid tribute to a teacher who died this weekend.
Moving tributes have been posted online to a teacher from Doncaster who was found dead in bed on Friday. Lewis Siddall, 24, was allegedly assaulted at the VDKA bar in the town centre shortly beforehand. A twenty-two year old has been arrested on suspicion of murder and released on police bail.
Tributes to the teacher at Copley Junior School in Sprotbrough have been posted on a special Facebook page set up in his memory.
It is feared hundreds of teachers in Bradford could quit their jobs if daily attacks by unruly pupils don't stop.
The claim was made by one of the largest teaching unions, the NASUWT, who say kicking, spitting and biting is a reality for many school staff in the area.
They blame the problem on significant behavioural issues and in some cases - a lack of parental support. A teaching shortfall could mean the council being forced to recruit from as far afield as Australia and Canada.
