Teacher suspended over web advert
A grab from the advert (MEN syndication)
The advert has been circulated among students
A teacher who starred in a "suggestive" internet advert has been suspended from her job at a private school.

Sarah Green was suspended from her job at Stockport Grammar after the advert, for Scruffs workwear, was circulated among students at the school.

The video was filmed two years ago, when Ms Green worked as a model and before she trained as a teacher.

Headteacher Andrew Chicken has written to parents at the school to inform them of the suspension.

He said: "I have taken the decision to suspend the member of staff from her duties pending the conclusion of an investigation.

"The suspension implies neither guilt nor innocence. It is a neutral action."

The video shows Ms Green simulating sex with a workman on an office table, but there is no nudity.

A spokesman for Scruffs said: "We used her services to promote our product - it was a tongue-in-cheek thing.

"She did something for us - it was her job - she was an actress and a model at the time."
