Couple Caught Kissing During NUT Conference, Torquay

Love was on the curriculum as a pair caught taking a more hands-on approach during a teaching union conference were chided after their teenage behaviour provoked a complaint.

The canoodling couple, who were spotted on a balcony at the National Union of Teachers (NUT) conference, got a ticking off after an observer lodged a complaint about their "inappropriate behaviour".

The NUT president Marilyn Harrop told delegates at the Torquay meeting the love-struck duo's behaviour was in a manner "not becoming to the union".

A spokesperson for the union said: 'There were no lewd acts, the conference was not shut down or suspended. If there was anything too extreme going on, it would have been a throwing out, not a scolding.

"Our president has a very dry sense of humour and I think that showed.

"We don't know who they were. It was an observer who complained so they could have been anybody."
