    A 14-year-old Hertfordshire student has been suspended from school for using topless pictures of the model Jordan in an English project, his family say.

    His father, Keith Petchey, has accused the authorities of over-reacting.

    James Petchey chose Jordan as the topic of his English project at Cavendish Comprehensive in Hemel Hempstead.

    He claims his teachers suspended him for 24 hours after he handed in the work. The education authority said it was an appropriate punishment

    James chose Jordan as his subject after being handed the task of searching the internet to find facts about his favourite celebrity.

    His father Keith said this punishment was over-the-top and draconian.

    "At no point was he told Jordan was an inappropriate topic and I'd rather he was researching her than gangsta rap artists," he said.

    A Hertfordshire County Council education department spokeswoman said: "It was an appropriate punishment.

    "Pupils are well aware that it is not allowed to download pictures of this nature and particularly not to include them in schoolwork.

    "There is, of course, a firewall on the school computers but some things do occasionally slip through the net."

    He has a good excuse. If he had not used a topless pic, he would only have got a double F.

    Good point. Perhaps the teachers haven't got a clough about computers and some geeky 14 year old student does all of the IT support.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -
