A jury has begun a second day of deliberations in the trial of a teacher accused of having a sexual affair with a pupil.

Stuart Kerner, 44, is accused of having sex with the teenager in empty classrooms and cleaning cupboards all over their school during an 18-month affair.

His alleged victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is a former student at Bexleyheath Academy in south east London.

She was 15 when the affair is said to have begun with the married religious studies teacher.

But staff at the school told the trial at Inner London Crown Court that the pupil was a “proven liar”.

Kerner is accused of two counts of sexual activity with a child and six counts of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.
