A man of the United Kingdom, was left embarrassed and without a job after he was banned from taking girls to school.

Tony Kemp of Pickering, North Yorkshire, was suspended from school for six days after the council was told that he was hugging girls.

However, while investigating the incident, the school officials learned that the girls he was hugging were his own daughters, and he was reinstated.

The 60-year-old man described the ordeal as a “nightmare.” Kemp said that he was called by the North Yorkshire County Council, and was told that he was suspended from school operations, effective immediately.

Kemp was told that an accusation was made against him, but they refused to give him further details.

Kemp found out from another person in the taxi business that someone saw him kissing young girls, and he is being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with them.

That is when Kemp realized that the person must have seen him hugging and kissing his own daughters.

Kemp, who runs the Crystal Cars in Pickering, said that he and his children’s mother are separated and the girls live with their mother.

When the girls, who are 9 and 11 years old, see their father bringing other girls to school, they run over to him. They hug and kiss as a regular family.

Tony said that he could not understand why he was not informed about the allegations before he was suspended so that he can clarify the situation.

Instead, he suffered humiliation. “I also lost hundreds of pounds worth of business, but worse than that is that the reputation I have built for the last twelve years, has been shattered,” kemp said.

“I am worried about people thinking that I went around kissing the school girls,” he said.

A council spokesperson in North Yorkshire said: “We have followed the child protection procedures. This matter has been investigated and found to be false.”

(Scroll down for video) A judge ruled that there was enough evidence to conclude that a father sexually assaulted his young daughter shortly before she died, according to court documents in the United Kingdom.

13-month-old Poppi Worthington was found with serious injuries in her home in Barrow.

Her father, 48-year-old Paul Worthington, was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, but was not charged with any crime.

Home Office pathologist Dr. Alison Armour, believes that Poppi was the victim of a penetrative sexual assault.

Justice Jackson said that he could not accept Paul’s version of the events that happened the day his daughter was found seriously injured.

According to Paul, Poppi woke up screaming around 5:30 a.m.

An ambulance was called, but she died at the hospital. An autopsy found that the girl had a previous fracture on the right leg and other suspected acute injuries.

Cumbria police announced that no charges would be brought against anyone for the death of Poppi. The judge criticized the way the police investigated the case.

Justice Jackson said that, the careful evaluation and meticulous pathological pediatric evidence has clearly established that the injuries of Poppi, were the result of trauma.

He concluded that Paul penetrated his daughter before her death.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is reviewing the way Cumbria police conducted their investigation.

During an investigation, it emerged that Paul watched pornography on his laptop hours before his daughter’s death.
