Paedophiles ‘join school’s Zoom lesson and expose themselves to Year 7 kids’
February 10, 2021
Parents have been left sickened after a group of paedophiles reportedly exposed themselves to Year 7 school pupils.
When kids at The Laurel Academy in Mexborough, South Yorkshire logged into their lesson they were confronted with "several foreign men" on different screens exposing themselves.
The men, who had hacked into the chat, were also saying crude things.
Jess Hughes, a mother of two pupils, told how the sickening scene had left her daughters "distraught".
She had the incident had left her feeling "sick to her stomach".
Ms Hughes told the BBC: "My girls have been really shocked and pale and quiet. I was distraught, I've been in tears all day.
"I was so angry and feel sick to my stomach."
Ms Hughes said her children will no longer access schoolwork online because she "can't trust it" and she has asked for all work to be given on paper.
She said the link was closed when a pupil messaged a teacher in a different class to alert them.
Before the link was closed the comments option had been left off so no-one could make it known what they could see.
South Yorkshire Police confirmed they had received reports of the incident and would be conducting an inquiry.
The school, near Doncaster, claimed the link to the lesson was provided by an external company.
Laurel Academy said it couldn't comment because the link to the lesson was provided by an external company.
Richard Brooke, The Laurel's principal, sent a letter to parents saying: "We are aware of an issue with an online external event attended by some of our Year 7 students today. We are taking steps with the external provider."
South Yorkshire Police and The Laurel Academy has been contacted by Daily Star Online for further comment.
