Head on leave after gay porn discovery
A headteacher has been given leave of absence after a police found a collection of gay pornography in his study.
Governors at William Hulme Grammar School in Whalley Range, Manchester, will review medical evidence before deciding the future of headteacher Bryan Purvis, 52.
Police found the pornography and sex aids in Mr Purvis's study while investigating a burglary at the £5,000-a-year school.
The married father-of-three blamed his actions on medication he was taking for depression.
