Police search home of TV weatherman Fred Talbot (allegations of historic sexual abuse at schools)
Police have searched the home of TV weatherman Fred Talbot as part of an investigation into allegations of historic sexual abuse at schools in the north west.
The 63-year-old is a former biology teacher at Altrincham Grammar School. Greater Manchester police have received a number of complaints made against staff who worked at the school in the 1970s.
Talbot is best known as the weather forecaster in the 80s and 90s on ITV's This Morning, presenting from a floating map in Liverpool's Albert Dock while frequently wearing garish multi-coloured jumpers.
Police added that their investigation was prompted following media reports of another probe into historic sexual abuse at a Catholic boys' school in Altrincham.
