A teenager in UK who shaved his head for a cancer charity has been removed from classes.

15-year-old Taylor Jones was told that his "extreme hairstyle" was inappropriate when he returned after the holiday.

The school says he is being given "individual specialist tuition" for four days until it grows back.

But Taylor's mother Lesley Jones says he should not be punished for trying to help others.

Jones said her son had decided to raise money for Cancer Research UK after a friend was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

He had been growing his hair for months in preparation for the event, which he had planned for June.

But Jones said she and her husband encouraged Taylor to move the shave forward to Easter, because his hair was so long it was covering his face.
