UNIONS have called for tough policies to tackle "cyber bullying" of teachers.

The Scottish Secondary Teachers Association have urged schools to take a "zero-tolerance" approach to pupils who target teachers online.

The call comes ahead of their annual congress, starting tomorrow in Aviemore.

It is in response to a number of cases in which teachers have found footage of themselves on websites.

The SSTA have urged all councils to put in place "effective, zero-tolerance policies" to deal with such incidents.

These include pupils found guilty of such practices being excluded and staff having the right to involve the police.
