Swansea Headteacher Graham Daniels Suspended Over School 'Sex Tape' (VIDEO) (NSFW)

A school "sex tape" and the subsequent suspension of a headteacher and a colleague that became internet sensation has led to furious parents threatening to withdraw their children from the school.

Ysgol Bryn Tawe in Swansea has been besieged by concerns from parents after a video emerged that was recorded outside an office at the school and "sex noises" can be heard from the other side of the door.

The video itself, which is still on YouTube, shows a brown door, and heavy breathing can be heard from behind it, along with barely discernible grunting.

The 27-second clip has been watched and shared hundreds of times on sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Suspended: Headteacher Graham Daniels

Students have now been banned from tweeting or posting on Facebook about the video, but one parent wrote last night: "I literally can’t believe this! Sounds like a soap opera!"

A student at the school told The Telegraph: “The video shows the door to the headmaster’s office. You can hear two people in the room having sex.”

One father of a pupil told the Daily Mail: "I am seriously considering moving my children from the school. The audio of the alleged sex act was taped by a pupil and is now a Facebook sensation."

Although officials have refused to comment on the video's contents, chair of governors Heini Gruffudd issued a statement saying head teacher Graham Daniels and another member of staff had been suspended.

Gruffudd said: "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."

Gruffudd added the school had received a "complaint", which it would not go in to detail about.

The Welsh-medium secondary school has around 750 pupils.

During its latest Estyn inspection report, it was praised by inspectors for the quality and consistency of its teaching.
