SICKENING child porn images were discovered on a teacher’s computer when he took it into school to get fixed.

Thomas Copeland, 29, downloaded 155 indecent pictures and movies of youngsters including 53 that fell into the second worst category possible.

They were uncovered when he took his personal computer to a school in Middlesbrough, where he worked as an technology teacher, to get fixed.

He was given a three-year community order with supervision at Teesside Crown Court and must attend a sex offender’s treatment programme.

Copeland, of Hazelmere Close, Billingham, previously admitted 15 charges of making indecent images of children and one of possessing indecent images.
