A PE teacher accused of having sex with one of her pupils on prom night was spotted “shimmying up and down” against the boy in the hours before she allegedly went to bed with him.

Melissa Tweedie, 27, is alleged to have partied with pupils at Glasgow’s SWG3 nightclub before going back to a Premier Inn hotel with an 18-year-old pupil.

The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) heard earlier this week that Tweedie, who was 23 at the time, kissed the boy in a hotel room before having sex with him in June 2017.

She has since left her job at Paisley’s Glennifer High School and now teaches yoga in Dubai.
