A married female tutor seduced a 13-year-old boy during a lesson at his home and then abused him for the next two years, a UK court has heard.

Carolyn Keeling (64) allegedly smoked cannabis and drank wine while teaching the boy, who she is said to have abused between 1993 and 1996.

Gloucester Crown Court heard Keeling stripped down to her underwear to sunbathe during an outdoor lesson on blankets outside the boy's home.

The pair later had sex with a condom she provided from her car, a jury was told.

The incident was allegedly the start of abuse that lasted two years and involved Keeling having sex with the boy at least 100 times.

Keeling, of Taynton, near Gloucester, was charged with six counts of indecent assault, which she denies.

The court heard Keeling was so trusted by the boy's family that she was given a key to their home and let herself in to give him lessons.

"At the time he didn't see it as abuse, he rather enjoyed it," said Mr Ed Burgess for the prosecution.

"It was only later that he came to understand it as the sexual abuse that it was."
