The Hampshire teacher acquited of assaulting a pupil after 'an eight month nightmare' said he felt vindicated after the county council's plans for a disciplinary hearing were dropped, according to The Mail on Sunday (p37).

Haydn Williams, 64, was acquited last month of assaulting a 12-year-old-boy. District judge Gareth Cowling said the supply teacher had been entitled to use some force to exercise authority over the boy.

But he was told that an investigation by Hampshire CC could result in a disciplinary hearing and a ban on him teaching in the county. The threat of this was dropped by the county last week.
