Former Ullapool teacher struck off for indecent images

A teacher convicted of possessing indecent images has been struck off the teaching register.

Martin Ingram, who taught history at Ullapool High School, asked the General Teaching Council for Scotland to remove him from the list.

He was convicted earlier this year of having an indecent image of children and an extreme image depicting a sex act between a person and an animal.

Ingram could be banned from working with children in other roles.

He cannot make an application to re-register as a teacher for two years.

GTC Scotland has also referred his case to Scottish Ministers for a decision on whether he should be barred from working with children.

Ingram was convicted in February of having taken, or permitted the taking of, an indecent image of children between May 2011 and March 2012.

He was also convicted of possessing an extreme pornographic image.

Ingram was sentenced at Dingwall Sheriff Court in March to carry out a Community Payback Order with a supervision requirement of three years.
