Two brothers who worked as teachers appeared in court after being charged over child abuse images allegations.

Dr Robyn Wheldon-Williams, 39, a teacher at Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen, Caernarfon, faces eight charges involving 1,400 images.

Dyfan Wheldon-Williams, 42, who worked at Ysgol y Moelwyn, Blaenau Ffestiniog, faces five charges involving 40 indecent images.

They entered no pleas at Caernarfon Magistrates' Court and were bailed.

The brothers will next appear at Caernarfon Crown Court in June.

A Gwynedd council spokesman said following a previous hearing: "The charges do not relate to their work for the authority."
