Two teacher brothers from Gwynedd have received three-year community orders after pleading guilty to possessing indecent images of children.

Robyn Wheldon-Williams, 39, admitted having 1,399 images and indecent movies.

Dyfan Wheldon Williams 43, admitted having 40 indecent images of children and possession of extreme images.

Judge Peter Heywood told Caernarfon Crown Court they had been living a "Jekyll and Hyde existence".

The pair, from Bontnewydd, Caernarfon, must attend an internet sexual offending programme.

Robyn Wheldon-Williams, a chemistry teacher in Caernarfon, used to present a science programme on the Welsh-language S4C channel and held a world record for enclosing the most people in a bubble.

His brother taught in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

They have been suspended from their posts.
