Teacher charged with sex offences
An art teacher has appeared in court charged with sexual offences against girls over a period of 30 years.

Kenneth Bright, 60, of Stoke Ash in Suffolk, is suspended from Archbishop Sancroft School, Harleston, Norfolk.

Mr Bright faced Thetford magistrates on five counts of indecent assault on girls under 16. The case was adjourned for a committal hearing on 9 November.

Mr Bright is also charged with sexually touching a girl aged 13, making an indecent photo and possessing cannabis.

Two of the alleged indecent assaults on a girl aged under 16 at Harleston date over a five-year period during the 1970s.
