A STEPFATHER who threatened a senior school teacher after his daughter was searched on suspicion of possessing a knife, escaped a jail sentence this week.

Instead, the 39-year-old was told to carry out an aggression replacement programme as part of a two-year supervision order.

"I have been asking for help with anger management for 10 years," he told Ely magistrates.

The court heard how the man went to an East Cambridgeshire school to complain about the school's actions. No weapon was found on the girl.

Inside an office, the man told a senior staff member: "I would like to smash your face in, because it would make me feel better."

He made threats, said prosecutor Olivia Gooding, and made offensive remarks about the school.
