Weston-super-Mare primary school teacher admits making indecent images of children
The National Crime Agency investigation has seen four men plead guilty to offences relating to an online chat room. Williams drove children to activities where they would play sport and have fun together.
Primary school teacher Wayne Brookes, 43, of Weston-Super-Mare, admitted four offences relating to indecent images of children on the chat room.
A primary school teacher from Weston-super-Mare has admitted making indecent images of children while using a vile internet chat room that live streamed the rape of a six-year old boy, according to the National Crime Agency.
The agency’s investigation has seen four men admit offences relating to an online chatroom which live streamed horrific abuse.
It says that in June, primary school teacher Wayne Brookes, 43, of Weston-Super-Mare, admitted four offences relating to indecent images of children on the chat room.
He will be sentenced on August 1 at Bristol Crown Court.
Williams drove children to activities where they would play sport and have fun together.
“As it’s clear that he believes children can be horrifically abused for his pleasure his arrest was a vital intervention.
“These men thought they’d found a corner of the internet where they could avoid the consequences of participating in abuse.
“They were wrong and others like them should know NCA officers have skills and tools that mean no one seeking to harm children is safe from the law.
“Protecting children is an integral part of the NCA’s mission and our officers are dedicated to ensuring people like these are brought to justice.”
Weston-super-Mare infant school teacher Wayne Brookes who viewed rape of baby in live film is jailed
Wayne Brookes taught infants for ten years but had a secret attraction to child abuse material

Primary school teacher Wayne Brookes, 43, of Weston-Super-Mare, admitted four offences relating to indecent images of children on the chat room
An infant school teacher who took part in a paedophile’s film show in which a youngster was raped live to camera has been jailed.
Married Wayne Brookes worked as a teacher for a decade, Bristol Crown Court was told, but beyond the school gates he harboured a secret fascination for child abuse images, which he furtively downloaded at night from his home.
His activities extended to participating in a perverts’ conference call in which abuse was streamed – in one event the live rape of a boy aged five and in another event the rape of a six months old baby.
Brookes, 43, of Arundell Road in Weston-super-Mare, pleaded guilty to four counts of making indecent images of children.
Judge Martin Picton jailed him for 20 months.
He told Brookes: “You offended in this way when you were working as a teacher, responsible for young children.
“It would have caused alarm and distress to the community – parents, fellow teachers and pupils would have been horrified by the revelation that one of their number chooses to offend in this way outside of school life.”
Brookes was handed a ten-year sexual harm prevention order designed to stop him re-offending, and ordered to sign as a sex offender for ten years.
He was barred from ever working with children again, and his computer equipment was forfeited – with the possible exception of his wedding day photos being saved for him.

Sam Jones, prosecuting, said a National Crime Agency operation identified Brookes’ sordid online activities under the name “Bear”, and he received a knock at his door. It was established he had downloaded some 105 images and 13 videos at the highest abuse category, as well as a small collection of stills and videos at lesser levels.
The size of the collection was actually more limited, according to his defence advocate.
Mr Jones said Brookes had obtained a code to access live streaming with like-minded paedophiles over the internet. He took part in four events, one involving another 46 perverts who viewed a boy aged five or six being orally raped.
Brookes could be seen watching on a webcam, naked from the waist up.
Another event proved to be a live broadcast of the same child being orally raped, while a third event showed abuse of a child aged eight to ten. A disturbing fourth event was a video of the oral rape of a six months old baby, the court heard.
Investigators found further child abuse images on Brookes’ USB stick, laptop computer and computer hard-drive.
Virginia Cornwall, defending, said her client had not distributed any indecent material. She said it was her client’s case that he was unaware that he watched live footage of a child rape.
Brookes, who resigned from his post at Westleigh Infant School in Backwell, sobbed as Miss Cornwall said her remorseful client had been struggling with stress at work, but did not commit any offences at work.
She told the judge: “Your honour sees him. He clearly is a broken man.”
