Trainee at Haverfordwest High School removed after allegedly sexting teenage pupil

Published

on

A MULTI AGENCY referral has been set up by Pembrokeshire County Council and Haverfordwest High School after allegations emerged that a man receiving training at the school had been inappropriately communicating with a pupil on social media.

It has been clarified that this man was not a teacher or trainee teacher, and has now been removed from the school premises.

Screenshots of the alleged sexually charged conversation, between the male and teenage girls on Snap Chat have been posted online and shared widely in the local area on Facebook.

The authenticity of the messages cannot at this stage be verified.

However in the messages shared online the trainee appears to have written the following: “Up to you, how far you willing to go? Xx” and “Ah, F*** You gonna tease me like that? That’s not fair haha… You could get me into so much trouble! Aha x

The man also asked for nudes: “I want to see that body – a few pics maybe? Xx”

A spokesperson for Pembrokeshire County Council said: “The Council and Haverfordwest High VC School have this morning (Oct 4) been made aware of allegations of inappropriate communication between a person undertaking training at the school and pupils.

“The person is not a teacher or an employee of the school but had been present at the school undertaking training.

“Immediately upon receiving the allegations the person was removed from the school grounds. A multi-agency referral has begun.”

The council declined to explain what the man was training for at the school.

Man admits to threatening woman with deactivated firearms

Published

on

A WHITLAND man has admitted to threatening a woman with deactivated copies of an AK-47 and an M16 assault rifle.

Craig Woodworth, 39, appeared at Swansea Crown Court charged with two offences. It was alleged that Woodworth, previously of St David’s Avenue, threatened a woman with a deactivated copy of a Kalashnikov AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle and a deactivated M16-A1 semi-automatic assault rifle in Carmarthen on February 18 last year.

The prosecution alleged that Woodworth’s behaviour caused the woman to believe unlawful violence would be used against her.

He was also charged with sending communications conveying a threatening message, relating to a video, on that same date. Woodworth, now of Tarvin Road in Chester, pleaded guilty to using the firearms to make the threats but denied sending a threatening message.

Prosecutor Dean Pulling said these pleas were acceptable, as the threatening message “was the mechanism of the threat” in the charge Woodworth had admitted.

“The defendant is realistic about his position,” said defence counsel David Singh.

Judge Geraint Walters ordered a pre-sentence report to be prepared. “This case plainly passes the custody threshold,” Judge Walters said.

The defendant was granted bail and will return to court on August 7.
