A former teacher from Solihull has admitted downloading hundreds of indecent images of children.

Christopher Davis, 43, from Monkspath in Solihull, pleaded guilty to 11 offences at Warwick Crown Court.

His brother Timothy, 38, who was also a teacher, was sentenced on Wednesday for the same offence.

Christopher Davis resigned from St Patrick’s Junior and Infant school following his arrest in August. He will be sentenced next month.

Timothy Davis, also from Monkspath, who used to teach at Monkspath Junior and Infants School, was given a three-year community service order and told to complete a sex offenders treatment programme.
