A head teacher and another member of staff have been suspended at a Swansea school at the centre of an alleged "sex tape" controversy.

Chair of governors at Ysgol Gyfun Bryn Tawe, Heini Gruffudd, said the suspension of Graham Daniels and an unnamed colleague followed a complaint.

But he did not elaborate.

It followed a film being posted on social media sites by pupils appearing to contain the sounds of people having sex coming from a room.

Mr Gruffudd said the school was running normally.

He said: "The school has received a complaint which did not name anyone involved. Following this the governing body is holding an investigation, in co-operation with the local authority.

"The head teacher and another member of staff are currently suspended and Mr Simon Davies, currently deputy head teacher at the school, will be managing the school for the time being.

"The school is running normally and we won't be commenting further at this time."

The Welsh-language secondary school in Penlan has around 750 pupils and received an "excellent rating" in its 2013 Estyn report.
