TV weatherman Fred Talbot has been arrested by police investigating historic sexual abuse at a school where he taught.

Fred, aged 63 was held on suspicion of three counts of indecent assault and four counts of inciting a child to commit acts of gross indecency.

The alleged offences relate to his time as a biology teacher at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in Manchester, between the early 1970s to early 1980s, where four alleged victims were pupils.

He remains in police custody for questioning.

Detective Chief Inspector Sellars said: “Since allegations were made to police in December 2012 we have made good progress with this investigation and with tracing and speaking to former pupils of Altrincham Grammar school.

“However, as part of our ongoing enquiry I am eager to trace anyone who attended the school between the early 1970s and 1980s, who feel they may have information to assist the police investigation.”
