Failures by school management in sex abuse case

A teacher was able to film himself abusing young girls because of a "lamentable failure" by school management, a review has found.

Nigel Leat, 51, was jailed indefinitely for abusing children at Hillside First School in Weston-super-Mare.

At his trial, which heard Leat abused five victims, some as young as six, the judge described him as a "paedophile of the most sickening order".

The serious case review was commissioned after Leat's 2010 arrest.
