Mother sent stripper to school as treat
By Emma Henry and agencies
A schoolboy had a 16th birthday to remember after a stripper ordered by his mother turned up at his drama class.
The boy's mother apparently booked a "gorilla" to mark her son's big day through an agency, but a stripper turned up instead.
The woman even asked her son's teacher at Nottingham's Arnold Hill School and Technology College to film the event so the family could see the boy's reaction.
The stripper, who arrived halfway through the lesson, first walked the unnamed boy around the class on all fours like a dog.
She then spanked him 16 times - once for each year - to the sound of Britney Spears, before stripping down to her bra and knickers.
It was only when she asked the schoolboy to rub cream on her that the shocked teacher called a halt to the show.
The boy's mother reportedly told the school the incident was the result of a booking error.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council, the local education authority, said they were investigating how the incident happened.
She said that nobody had been suspended and the police were not involved.
The spokeswoman said: "We and the school are investigating into the situation."
One teenager, who witnessed the show, told the Daily Mail: "She (the stripper) asked the lad to stand up, which he did, and told him he had been a very naughty boy because he hadn't been doing his homework.
"Then she put on some Britney Spears music and got out a collar and lead from her bag and told him to put them on.
"No-one could believe it. Next she ordered him to get on all fours, led him around the classroom and hit him 16 times - once for each year - on the bottom with her whip.
"Then she took off some clothes until she was down to her bra and pants, pulled out some cream, put it on her buttocks and told him to rub it in.
"To be fair to the teacher, you could tell she was just stunned - and when the cream came out she told the stripper 'That's it. That's enough'."
The teenager said the boy the ran out of the classroom while the stripper calmly packed her bag and left.
A spokeswoman for the school said Nottinghamshire County Council was handling the incident.

Teachers in need of all our support
By Joe Riley
EVERY seven minutes a British teacher is physically attacked or spat at.
Who in their right mind would want to face a class of unruly, ill-disciplined brats, in the knowledge that each time there was a complaint against them, councils and school governors were likely to cave in to political correctness?
Witness the case of PE teacher Bob McKenzie, who resigned after being suspended for retaliating against a 15-year-old boy who allegedly pushed him and used indecent language.
Moves to reinstate "star" instructor Mr McKenzie, supported by hundreds of people, including ex-pupils, in an on-line petition, should be heeded.
In these wishy-washy times, I recall that my parents had to sign a form sanctioning reasonable physical or corporal punishment if required.
In a school of 700 boys, there were very few such incidents.
Not least because of a particular Latin master (who also taught Radio 4's Quote, Unquote presenter Nigel Rees) who kept two slippers on his desk.
One was called Percy, the other Mercy.
To introduce a note of humour, the teacher, the late, great Noel Wylie, would boom: "Any trouble, and I shall have to beat you with Percy. That is without Mercy."
What a good bunch of eager-to-learn lads that made us.
