A former teacher with an apparent "food fetish" is accused of asking a female student to put a pie down his pants, BBC News reported. The man is also accused of having inappropriate video-chats with his students, in which he asked them to smear themselves in ketchup and eggs and to pour sour milk into their underwear.
Gavin Bradford, 37, allegedly made sexual, food-related advances to at least 21 students at a college in Canada in 2006 and 2007, and he was registered to teach students as young as 12, the Daily Record reported. But after losing his job in Canada, he then moved to Scotland and got a job as a performing arts lecturer at Coatbridge College in January 2010.

The investigation began when Ontario authorities tipped the Scottish teacher register off about the earlier accusations against him. The General Teaching Council in Scotland looked into it and ruled that Bradford was "unfit to teach," the BBC said. Bradford did not show up at to his hearing in Edinburgh.
However, the GTC also has no record of Bradford currently teaching in Scotland. “I’m not working as a teacher here and I have no comment to make," he told the Daily Record.
