Teacher at Orkney school accused of sexual comments

A teacher at an Orkney school who allegedly made sexual comments to pupils is facing a ban from the classroom.

Kenneth Dickson, 30, was teaching maths and religious education at Westray Junior High School in Orkney in 2008.

It is alleged one comment was "stop having an orgasm".

Mr Dickson, of Motherwell, denied the charges at a disciplinary hearing of the General Teaching Council for Scotland in Edinburgh.

He failed to attend to defend himself and the tribunal continues next week.
