School to face £1m claim over paedophile teacher
23rd June 2014

The parents of around 60 children believed to have been abused by a teacher at an elite London school, are said to be proposing a potential £1m compensation claim.

Images of pupils were found earlier this year on a computer owned by William Vahey, a convicted paedophile from America.

Vahey taught at the Southbank International School between 2009 and 2013. He killed himself in March after his criminal behaviour was uncovered.
