Teacher Arrested In Spain Over Sex Offences

A teacher accused of sex offences has been held by police in Spain, after failing to appear at a court in Essex.

Cory Baptiste, 24, was apprehended in Barcelona on a European Arrest Warrant on Thursday and police are now seeking to bring him back to the UK.

He was due to attend Basildon Crown Court in August, charged with five offences against children.

The National Crime Agency said: "He appeared at a Spanish court and extradition proceedings are under way."

Mr Baptiste has been charged with five offences of abusing a position of trust: One for causing or inciting sexual activity with a boy aged 13-17; one of causing or inciting sexual activity with a girl aged 13-17; one of causing a child under 13 to watch a sexual act; and two of causing a child aged 13-17 to watch a sexual act.

Essex Police said Mr Baptiste previously lived in Fanns Rise, Purfleet, and was working as a teacher at the time of the alleged offences.
