Dale Morris, of Gloucester Road, Pilgrims Hatch, has been charged with one count of raping the girl in Essex between 2005 and 2007 and one count of raping the same girl between 2009 and 2011 in Norfolk.

The 45-year-old worked at Brentwood County High School, but it is not believed the girl is connected to the school in any way.

Morris was arrested on April 30 this year following reports a woman in her 20s had been the victim of historic sexual assault.

He was released on bail pending further enquiries, which an Essex Police spokesman said have now concluded.

Morris, who is still on bail, will appear at Basildon Crown Court on January 22 2014.
