Teacher Vanessa Law struck off over Fife thefts while on drugs

A primary school teacher who broke into a house while using heroin has agreed to be formally struck off the professional register.

Vanessa Law, 32, admitted using the Class A drug while working at a school in Fife.

She also stole petrol from garages in Fife and Glasgow during 2012.

Law was officially taken off the teaching register at a "removal with consent" hearing on 5 November.

The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) had charged her with five offences.

They included stealing fuel from two Shell garages in Glasgow and Glenrothes and from an Asda petrol kiosk in Dunfermline.

Law also admitted using heroin while working as a teacher and stealing money from a house in Lochgelly.

She did not attend the hearing.
