Teacher Alan Beer admits indecent images charges

A teacher from North Yorkshire has admitted charges in connection with indecent images in Plymouth.

Alan Beer, 51, of Whitby, admitted making and possessing indecent images, as well as possessing extreme pornographic images.

At Plymouth Crown Court, he was sentenced to nine months in jail, suspended for two years.

He was arrested last September following a summer-long police investigation.

After he was charged in January, Devon and Cornwall police said they were "keen to stress" that no children from Plymouth schools were linked to the offences.
