Frank Lampard's former public school has expelled a pupil for taking pictures up a staff member's skirt.

The pupil, who attended Brentwood school, a private boarding establishment in Essex, was initially suspended for taking an "inappropriate picture" two weeks ago using his mobile phone. Following his re-admittance, images of two other female staff were found, some dating back as far as September last year, the Brentwood Gazette reported.

Police have now been called in to the school to investigate the incidents, which headteacher Ian Davies, said had "greatly upset" the teaching faculty.

In a letter to parents dated 3 February, Davies confirmed the pupil would be "leaving the school".

As a result of this incident, I intend to review our mobile phones policy. Up until now we have tried to balance the educational desire to ensure students use the technology sensibly and the need to protect both students and teachers from the unwelcome effects of the misuse of this technology. Clearly, the incident has greatly upset many of our teachers.

Davies continues to ask parents to contribute their thoughts on the current policy which states mobile phones are only permitted during break and lunchtime and should only be used for "school-related matters and essential communication with home".

A spokesperson for Essex Police confirmed the force was liaising with the school over the complaints which were made on 31 January.

"We are arranging to meet with staff to gather more information."

The school, which has produced a host of famous names, including comedian Keith Allen, former home secretary Jack Straw and current health secretary Andrew Lansley, charges £14,000 a year for boarders.
