Andrew Welsh arrives at Bolton Crown Court, Bolton, where was due to be sentenced for sexual activity with a child

A WOMAN discovered her daughter was having sex with a teacher from Atherton after she found him hiding under the teenager’s bed, a court has heard.

Married maths teacher Andrew Welsh, 36, of High Bank, Atherton, was caught when the girl’s mother returned home unexpectedly one morning last July, Bolton Crown Court heard.

Her daughter had ruffled hair and smudged lipstick and, when the mother went upstairs, she noticed a pair of man’s boots at the side of the bed in the 16-year-old’s room, Geoff Whelan, prosecuting, told the jury.

This “understandably aroused suspicion” in the mother, who asked the girl: “What are you doing? Who is here?”

Mr Whelan went on: “However, as that was said, she looked down and saw movement in the drawer compartment within the girl’s single divan bed and the valance sheet folded back.

“She saw movement of material which seemed to match the suit jacket her daughter was holding.

“The girl replied ‘Mr Welsh’.
