Fred Talbot Found Guilty Of Indecent Assaults

Former weather presenter Fred Talbot has been found guilty of indecently assaulting two boys when he was a teacher.

Talbot showed little emotion in response to the verdicts, which related to two victims who were aged 14 or 15 in the 1970’s.

The 65-year-old, who was known to millions for his forecasts on a floating weather map for ITV’s This Morning show, was described as a “chancer” at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Mr Talbot and his TV crew often visit Southport when working for Granada.
