A PRIMARY teacher accused of a string of sexual abuse charges against former pupils made another court appearance.

Gerald King, 65, is accused of using lewd and libidinous practices towards six school children while he was a teacher at a school in Glasgow.

The charges span from August 1, 1983 to June 30, 1989 at the school and are alleged to have been committed against four boys and two girls.

King, from Springburn, also faces a seventh charge of taking or permitting to be taken, indecent images of children between January 1987 and December 1988.

The pensioner - represented by defence counsel Gavin Anderson - denies the charges against him.

Sheriff Alan McKenzie set a further pre-trial hearing for next month and continued King’s bail.
