A man has been bailed on blackmail charges after allegedly setting up a pornographic Web site under the name of London restaurant School Dinners.
In what is believed to be the first case of blackmail connected with the Internet in the UK, David Brown, 45, is accused of publishing images of men spanking naked girls on a Web site using the School Dinners name.
Brown, of Riverside Close, Orpington, Kent, is charged with threatening to include hard-core porn on the site unless the restaurant bought the site from him for £2,000. The case has been adjourned for the prosecution to view the images in question.
School Dinners in Baker Street, London, has been used in the past by Prince Andrew and friends. It is famous for having waitresses dressed as schoolgirls who sometimes playfully spank customers.
