A Bury College tutor who has pleaded guilty in court to possessing child porn has resigned from his post.

Darren Lee Tattersall, aged 33, of Warwick Drive, Earby, appeared before Blackburn magistrates last week.

He will be sentenced at Preston Crown Court on September 10.

Last week, a Bury College spokesman said that the charges were not related to college activity.

Today, the spokesman added that Tattersall had resigned from his position at the college.
