A TEACHER charged with engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff.

Adrian Wolfson, 35, from Well Hall, Eltham, was found dead at the bottom of a cliff in St Just, Penzance, Cornwall last Wednesday.

The teacher at Deansfield Primary School, Dairsie Road, Eltham, appeared at Greenwich Magistrates' Court on February 22 charged with two counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, while at Thamesmere Leisure Centre, Thamesmead.

He was granted bail and was due to appear at Woolwich Crown Court on April 4.

Staff at a hotel in St Ives reported him missing on the morning of Tuesday, February 26.

Police began searching the area day and night and found the man's rucksack on the coastal path near the cliff the following afternoon.

A police helicopter found his body later that day.

Deansfield Primary School and Greenwich council suspended Mr Wolfson after he was charged.

A spokesperson for Greenwich council said: "The council has been supporting Deansfield Primary School during what is obviously a very difficult time. Among the support we are offering includes bereavement counselling if the school feels this is helpful and

necessary.
