A TEACHING assistant has been accused of having sex with a schoolboy.

Elaine McKay sent the 15-year-old compromising pictures of herself before the two allegedly had sex, a court heard today.

Explicit video messages were also exchanged between the teenager and the 58-year-old, a jury heard.

Chelmsford Crown Court was also told the alleged relationship came to light when the teenager showed some of the pictures to his friends.

McKay denies having sex with the teenager but has admitted the exchange of explicit photographs.

The court heard she worked as a teaching assistant at Clacton Coastal Academy.

Richard Scott, prosecuting, said: "They had perfectly consensual sex. The only problem was he was less than 16 at the time and she was in her late 50s."

McKay, of Banister Close, Clacton, denies two charges of sexual activity with the teenager and another of causing him to look at an image of sex activity.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 2012 and May last year.

•The trial continues.
