A teacher has been found guilty of professional misconduct for spending up to four hours a day on sites including Facebook.

Sian Mediana, 40, spent four hours a day on eBay, checking her bank account and looking at Facebook.

She denied the charges after resigning from Fairwater Primary School in Cardiff, saying she only used the internet occasionally, the Daily Telegraph reported. She also claimed it must have been children, her teaching assistants or other staff visiting the sites.

But the General Teaching Council for Wales accepted evidence from two teaching assistants who said she used the internet for personal reasons during school hours.

Cardiff Council sent an IT expert into the school to investigate sites visited. They included Virgin Atlantic, Lloyds TSB, Credit Expert, Travel Supermarket, Easyjet and Flightline.
