A talk by Graham Taylor to a group of Year 7 children was halted when teaching staff objected to his use of graphic vocabulary:

A parish priest who became a best-selling children's author was asked to leave a secondary school because he used "inappropriate language" during a talk to 11- and 12-year-old pupils.

Teachers halted the talk be G P Taylor, the author of Shadowmancer, after he used words such as bum, arse, bogey, fart and crap.
