A pervy sports teacher was caught flashing his private parts to woman in a park – and he swung it “around like a Catherine wheel".
Jason Ledgister, who was once employed by GB Taekwondo, has now been banned for life from teaching after being found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.
He flashed more than one female member of the public and told them to “look”, while an employee of Birmingham's Ark Boulton Academy.
He first exposed himself from his car in November 2013 to a woman who had ben standing at a bus stop.
A tribunal heard how a man pulled up alongside her and pulled his tracksuit bottoms down to his ankles.
The panel was told he then began masturbating while shouting "look!" during the incident which lasted 15 minutes.
Mr Ledgister resigned from the school on June 20, 2017 before allegedly exposing himself to a second woman, again from his car, just seven days later.
He then began working at GB Taekwondo but started employment with an agency as a supply teacher at Small Heath School, in Birmingham, in May 2018.
It was around this time that he was spotted masturbating next to a bridge in West Smethwick Park in broad daylight.
One woman, described only as Female C, said the man had his jogging bottoms on the ground around his ankles and was not wearing any underwear.
She described how he lifted his t-shirt up with one hand while using the other to touch himself and was “swinging his penis around like a Catherine wheel”.
After being arrested, Mr Ledgister did not disclose his profession as a teacher and told cops instead that he worked as a labourer.
Despite later being found not guilty at magistrates of indecent exposure, the Teaching Regulation Agency found all of the allegations proven following the hearing on April 13.
Chair of the panel Emma Moir banned Mr Ledgister from the classroom indefinitely after finding his behaviour "fell significantly short of the standards expected of the profession."
She said: “The findings of misconduct are serious, and the conduct displayed would be likely to have a negative impact on Mr Ledgister’s status as a teacher, potentially damaging the public perception.
“The panel therefore found that Mr Ledgister’s actions constituted conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute."
