Wimbledon Guardian: Jackie Schneider (front) no longer under investigation Jackie Schneider (front) no longer under investigation

A primary school teacher investigated for sending 'offensive' tweets during a public meeting is now in the clear.

Jackie Schneider, a teacher at Poplar and St Theresa's primary schools in Morden, was reported by Councillor Richard Hilton after live-tweeting a UK Independence Party (UKIP) meeting on January 21.

Mrs Schneider sparked a debate after sharing her opinons of UKIP views on immigration, honour killings and tax with her 4,000 followers.

She was told to stop using social media while the school investigated.

A Merton Council spokesperson said: "This was a staff matter for the schools to deal with and we are satisfied that the right discussions have taken place for the matter to now be closed."

Shame that the investigation wasn't concluded BEFORE the press decided to drag the teachers reputation through the mud!
