The home of a convicted rapist is being used as an unregulated Islamic school for children.
Ghulam Haider's wife is teaching around 17 children of primary school age at the madrassa that she runs from their front room at weekends.
Former taxi driver Haider, 61, was jailed for six years in 2006 after a court heard he brutally raped a 16-year-old at a derelict churchyard.
The madrassa highlights a safeguarding loophole around children attending 'out of school education' centres, which require no monitoring from education watchdog Ofsted or local authorities.
There is also no requirement for Haider's wife, Sadiqqa, who teaches classes in their front room, to submit to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks.
