A tip-off from overseas law enforcement agencies put Customs on the tail of a teacher who is now facing charges after child sexual abuse images and videos were found on his phone.

The 40-year-old man was arrested at Auckland Airport on Wednesday night, after arriving back in the country from a year-long sabbatical in the United Kingdom.

He appeared in the Manukau District Court yesterday on representative charges for importing and possessing objectionable publications.
