A social worker who had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl in his care has avoided being sent to jail.Eh? What? I thought that was supposed to be THE big no-no, surely?

Richard Superville, 51, of Ceylon Road, Westcliff, was caught out after explicit photographs of the teenager were found on his laptop, a court heard.
