A paedophile who taught at Havering special needs school will be sentenced today.

David Bright pleaded guilty to 13 counts of making and possessing indecent images of children as well as one count of sexual touching of a child under 13 on September 2.

The 30-year-old will be sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Furious parents said the first they knew of Bright’s crime was when they read the Recorder’s exclusive report last month.

One said they were “disgusted” while another called it a “disgrace.”

Bright, of Brentwood, was first arrested in November last year and charged the following month.

It is not alleged that any of the offences took place at a school.

Bright is thought to have made thousands of images of children but police have only been able to identify three youngsters.

One image shows him pushing apart a boy’s legs while he is on the toilet.
