London, Jan 20 (ANI): A schoolteacher in Scotland has been suspended following allegations that he was trawling a "dogging" website for sex.
Tommy Murphy, head of the business department at St Matthew's Academy in Saltcoats, Ayrshire, is under investigation over "allegations of inappropriate behaviour", reports the Scotsman.
The grey-haired 58-year-old's entry on the dogging.co.uk site - used by people looking for casual sexual encounters - showed that his pupils were seeing only one side of a very complex lifestyle.
Listing himself as "Saltcoats-tommy", he describes himself as a "professional gentleman", "fit" but with "work and family commitments".
And he said that if interested parties are keen to meet him, "name the time and place and I'll be there. I've also got a wicked imagination if you fancy some erotic e-mail sex."
Adding that he was looking for a "straight woman", the teacher lists himself as being interested in a wide spectrum of sexual pursuits.
His entry stated that he was up for meeting anywhere in Scotland but prefers south-west or central Scotland.
Accompanying his apparent profile were alleged to be a series of pictures of the teacher, including what appeared to be a self-portrait in which he was wearing just a pair of black briefs and exposing himself to the camera.
The other images were said to show him posing shirtless on holiday and wearing full Highland dress.
One source at the school said that pupils had been informed of the allegations.
"The guy is a teacher and should know better. It wouldn't take much for a pupil to find the site, especially secondary school. The site is really sleazy and I would think education bosses will be pretty angry at him being there," the source said.
"The kids were told at an assembly about this and it was suggested he was the victim of a fake site. But that seems to be because it's so embarrassing," the source added. (ANI)
