Ex-head and children’s charity founder charged over sex offences

A former head teacher and founder of a children’s charity has been charged with a number of sex offences.

Colin Gregg, 73, from Gosforth, Newcastle, was arrested two years ago over the offences, dating from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Mr Gregg, son of the Greggs bakery founder, was head of the former King’s School in Tynemouth and set up the North East Children’s Cancer Run.

He has been charged with 26 counts of indecent assault.

Mr Gregg is due to appear at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court in March.

The offences relate to nine victims, Northumbria Police said.

Mr Gregg was a non-executive director Greggs before his retirement in 2001.
