A teacher who secretly recorded himself sexually assaulting boys at a public school has had his sentence cut.

Phillip Evans, 39, who taught music at King Edward's School in Edgbaston, was jailed for 44 months at Birmingham Crown Court in December.

The court heard he set up spy cameras in changing rooms and he admitted charges of sexual assault, voyeurism and making indecent images of children.

His sentence has been cut to 32 months after a hearing at the Court of Appeal.

A written judgement explaining the decision is expected to be delivered in the next few weeks, the court said.

In December, police said Evans, previously of Warwards Lane, Selly Oak, had "amassed 350,000 indecent images of children over four years".

Evans, who also ran the school's RAF cadet scheme, installed a camera in a store cupboard where he would physically abuse boys.

Detectives said Evans had also bought tiny remote-controlled cameras and hidden them in changing rooms to record pupils as they got ready for sports.
