Fred Talbot Arrested



TV weather presenter Fred Talbot has been arrested by police investigating allegations of historical child sex abuse at a Greater Manchester school.

Officers are examining claims of abuse at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in the 1970s and 80s.

Mr Talbot was arrested on suspicion of three counts of indecent assault and four counts of inciting a child to commit acts of gross indecency.

The 63-year-old was a biology teacher at the school at the time.

A police spokesman said: “The offences relate to his time as a teacher at the school between the early 1970s to early 1980s, while the four victims were pupils.”
