Ex-supply PE teacher jailed over intimate online chats with underage girls

A former supply PE teacher will never be able to return to the profession after being jailed for the sexual incitement of underage girls and downloading indecent images of children.

Steven Longstaff, 28, of Kirk Merrington was given a two-year sentence at Durham Crown Court after recently admitting six charges.

Four relate to a series of sexualised online chats with girls aged 13 to 15 between January and February 2015, during which Longstaff was made aware of all their ages at the time.
