Parent of pupil in Nigel Leat's school: 'I absolutely despise him'

A North Somerset primary school teacher filmed himself sexually abusing young girls in his classroom, a court heard.

Nigel Leat, 51, of Bloomfield Road, Bristol, admitted 36 sexual offences at Bristol Crown Court in May, and is due to be sentenced on Tuesday.

The court heard Leat filmed his abuse of five girls at Hillside First School, Weston-super-Mare, over five years.

A mother, whose children attend the school where Nigel Leat teaches, but who were not abused by him, described what it was like to find out about the crimes.
