Luton primary school worker guilty of downloading child sex images

A primary school staff member has been sacked after being charged with downloading indecent images of children, the Luton News can reveal.

Reuben Francis, 28, of Hart Lane, Luton, worked for Stopsley Community Primary School’s FLAG Club – a scheme which runs to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, as well as pupils who speak English as an additional language.

The 28-year-old was suspended from the school after being arrested by police and charged with seven counts of downloading child sex images.

Francis admitted the charges and will appear at Luton Crown Court for sentencing on July 8.
