A teacher is being investigated after wearing a tight red morph suit for World Book Day.
Martyn Tunstall works at Broxburn Academy in West Lothian, Scotland and issues were raised when he approached pupils dressed as 'Spider-Man', wearing a fairly revealing red morph suit last week.
Photographs of the incident have since been shared online, showing the English teacher walking around in the bright, and rather inappropriate, outfit.
Another image shows the secondary school teacher with the top of the suit unzipped, revealing his face.
According to reports, pupils were left shocked by their teacher's behaviour.
And since the photos were shared on social media, the school has received a number of complaints and an investigation has now been opened.
The relative of one pupil posted a photograph on Twitter of the teacher on Friday (4 March), writing: "Guy teacher at my wee cousin's school has been sacked for dressing up for World Book Day in one of they morph suits not knowing his c**k baws, the lot, were on show.
"He was chasing the weans pretending to be Spider-Man."
Since being posted, it has received over 4,000 likes, more than 280 retweets and dozens of comments.
One person joked: "Imagine going for a new job after that. 'What were you sacked for in your last job?'"
While another chimed in: "This is Broxburn HS, I had a wee guy in for a trim after school, absolutely traumatised."
Another social media user tagged Broxburn in their post on Saturday (5 March). They said: "Anyone else think this is an appropriate costume for World Book Day? Worn by a teacher at Broxburn Academy."
"@broxburnacademy Is this considered acceptable attire for teachers at the academy? I’m sure many of your students’ parents would disagree," commented another user.
Other footage has also emerged, which shows a man sending a goodbye message to school leavers while dancing about wearing a similar red morph suit.
According to reports, the video was posted to the Broxburn Academy YouTube page last year.
Responding to the criticism, a spokesman for West Lothian Council said yesterday (7 March) that the incident was being looked at.
They said: "An issue at a lunchtime World Book Day event is currently being addressed internally."
LADbible has contacted Broxburn Academy for a comment on the matter.
