An Aberdeenshire teacher jailed after he admitted possessing and distributing thousands of images of children being abused has been struck off.

Alan Nardoni worked at Portlethen Academy and coached the under 14 boys football team.

He downloaded images to a computer he used for school work, some of which a sheriff described as "truly dreadful."

Nardoni was jailed for three-and-a-half years at Inverness Sheriff Court last year.

The General Teaching Council for Scotland's fitness to teach panel has also now made a referral to Scottish ministers who will consider whether or not Nardoni should be barred from working with children.
