Relationship News: A sixth form teacher in Birmingham has proved incredibly reluctant to accept a Facebook friend request from one of his pupils.

The friend request proved both baffling and slightly creepy to history teacher Norman Thorngod, 43, who says that it ‘crossed a line’.

“Why would they want to be my Facebook friend? Does this 17-year-old share the same interests as me, a middle-aged man? Unless they’re into gardening and the music of Beethoven I very much doubt it.”

What Thorngod initially saw as a ‘funny, weird’ situation, he now describes as ‘worrying’.

“They’re probably going to print out all my holiday pictures from Facebook and Photoshop cocks on them, then put them up all over the school.”

“Or use what personal information they can find to compromise my online identity and implicate me in a series of murders that happened in Shropshire in the summer of 1998 that I certainly had no part in.”
