Kingston Crown Court has heard how Kew Green Prep School's former PE teacher abused a seven year old pupil during a lesson.

22 year old Rob Somjen, who lives in Chiswick, was charged with 'sexually touching' two children at the school earlier this year.

The court was told that Somjen had allegedly abused a seven year old boy at the back of the classroom whilst the rest of the class watched a news show on the internet and then again in the following academic year in the school's sports shed.

The abuse apparently came to light when the boy in question touched himself sexually in front of his parents saying "this is what Mr Rob did".

Somjen, who was suspended from his post following the allegation last year, denies the charges.

The case continues.
