According to figures released by the Labour party, London schoolchildren are being dangerously exposed to supply teachers who are unfit for the job, the Evening Standard reports (p6).

In the most alarming cases highlighted from a survey of 242 of the capital's 350 secondary schools, Labour points to one in Southwark where a supply teacher with mental health difficulties falsely accused two 13-year-old pupils of rape, and in Mitcham, where seven primary children were gagged with sticky tape.

It is estimated that one in 15 classes are taught by supply teachers covering for absent teachers.
