TV weatherman Fred Talbot arrested again over sex abuse claims
Former This Morning weather presenter faces claims he sexually assaulted boys at a grammar school where he taught
The TV weatherman Fred Talbot has been rearrested over claims he sexually abused boys at a school in Manchester.
The 63-year-old, who presented the weather on ITV’s This Morning in the 1980s and 90s, has been held by detectives investigating allegations of historic abuse at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys.
Mr Talbot taught biology at the school in the 1970s and early 80s before his TV career took off, and was first arrested on 9 April this year on suspicion of abuse against four former pupils.
He has now been detained in relation to further alleged indecent assault and buggery offences on five pupils at the Greater Manchester school, as well as claims of indecent assault in the North East.
Greater Manchester Police confirmed Mr Talbot remains on bail in relation to one previous count of indecent assault, but that no further action would be taken regarding other allegations of indecent assault and inciting a child to commit acts of gross indecency.
The meteorologist is best known for presenting alongside Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan on the ITV programme, in which he would forecast from a floating map of the British Isles in Liverpool’s Albert Dock.
He continued to present the weather for Granada Reports in the North West until detectives first searched his home in December 2012, while he was on a sailing holiday in the Caribbean.
Police said Mr Talbot had been retained in custody for questioning.
