A school teacher lost her license after being caught posing as a teenage girl and accusing a principal of raping her, police in the United Kingdom said.

The North Wales Police Service decided not to file charges against 32-year-old Eleri Edwards, despite making at least ten false allegations against principal Tudur Williams.

However, the Education Workforce Council suspended Edwards’ license after she blamed her husband for making the false allegations.

According to the police investigation, Edwards made false accusations about Williams after she was dismissed from the Ysgol Ardudwy school.

The reason for her dismissal as a math teacher was given as incompetence.

In order to take revenge, she called Childline on 10 separate occasions, claiming that she was a 13-year-old girl in the school and was being sexually assaulted by Williams.

Williams was interviewed by the police, and they determined the allegations are a hoax. Detectives then traced the IP address of the online complaints Edwards.

She was arrested and released without being prosecuted.
