A supply teacher who said he was attracted to boys at the Gateshead school he worked at. Police launched an investigation into Aaron Goodwin aged 29.

He boasted he was attracted to boys at the Cardinal Hume Catholic School in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.

Officer seized his laptop and found skype conversations in which he revealed he allegedly admitted he was a teacher attracted to boys at the school.

He admitted he had pleasured himself at the school and asked a stranger if he was ‘into lads in their early teens.’ The teacher also used dating websites such as Grindr while at work.

It is believed that the supply teacher had worked all over the north east including schools in Gateshead, Newcastle, Seaham, Middlesbrough and Hartlepool.

In his defence, Goodwin had claimed the messages were sent by a convicted sex offender who had access to his flat in Newcastle.

Goodwin has now been banned from teaching for life after the disciplinary panel in Coventry, West Midlands, rejected his claims and found him guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.

Jayne Millions, of the National College of Teaching and Leadership panel ‘Mr Goodwin, accepted in evidence that he used the social media dating application Grindr and also admitted that he used the application whilst employed as a supply teacher at the school.

‘The panel’s findings against Mr Goodwin included use of a social media dating application on school premises, engagement in online conversations of a sexually explicit nature involving reference to illegal sexual activity with minors, and a sexual interest in pupils.

‘Whilst there was no evidence of possession of indecent images, there was evidence that Mr Goodwin was interested in such images and sought to obtain them.’

Northumbria Police did not have enough evidence to charge Goodwin at the advice of CPS despite a police investigation forensic examination of computers and being interviewed under police caution.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
