It sounds like a porn film, says ‘plane sex’ teacher

A TEACHER accused of having sex with a pupil in the toilet of a plane told police the allegation sounded like the script of a ‘weird porn film’.

Eleanor Wilson is said to have had sex with the then 16-year-old on a British Airways flight back from Africa in 2015.

A jury heard that, when questioned, the science teacher, 29, told police the boy had imagined the encounter, adding: ‘I think it is something that is scripted. It is not memory.’

Wilson said she had been wearing size ten hiking boots and jeans — making it impossible to take a trouser leg off over her shoe as the boy claimed. She told the court: ‘You’d have to take boots off first to get trousers off.’

Wilson, who was then in a relationship with ex-partner Andrew Hall, said the boy ‘was really the only person I had that was a friend’. During the seven months after the school trip there were 339 contacts on the boy’s mobile phone, the court heard. The 6ft 2in tall teacher denied holding hands or kissing the boy in his bedroom. She told officers: ‘I don’t think he can even reach.’

She also told police she confided in the boy that she was pregnant, and would have an abortion, because she did not want to tell Mr Hall.

Wilson, of Dursley, Gloucestershire, denies four charges of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.

The Bristol crown court trial continues.
