A headteacher and fellow colleague at a school in the midst of a "sex tape" controversy have been suspended, its chair of governors has confirmed.

Ysgol Bryn Tawe in Swansea has been besieged by concerns from parents after video footage supposedly filmed inside the school was posted online.

It is claimed the video was recorded outside an office at the school and "sex noises" can be heard from the other side of the door.

The clip has been watched and shared hundreds of times on sites such as Facebook and YouTube.

Although officials have refused to comment on the video's contents, chair of governors Heini Gruffudd issued a statement saying head teacher Graham Daniels and another member of staff had been suspended.

Mr Gruffudd said: "The head teacher and another member of staff are currently suspended and Mr Simon Davies, currently deputy head teacher at the school, will be managing the school for the time being.

"The school is running normally and we won't be commenting further at this time."

Mr Gruffudd added the school had received a "complaint", which it would not go in to detail about.

The Welsh-medium secondary school has around 750 pupils.

During its latest Estyn inspection report, it was praised by inspectors for the quality and consistency of its teaching.

Sounds very much like one of the headteachers we used to have in town, then they got rid of them and they ended up with a nice cushy government job. Quite typical and par for the course with some, where they think they are so flame proof and untouchable they become almost iconic like, especially amongst their staff who stay tight lipped and brown nose them, or even worse if they have sh*t on their boss, its easy promotion for you a little dark mail comes into play.
