Cupboard assault

A teacher who carried a pupil and put him in a cupboard after hearing him telling a racist joke has been found guilty of assault.

Michael Becker of Stutton, Suffolk, denied assaulting the child, who cannot be named for legal reasons, at his trial at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court last week.
