A former violin teacher wanted over historical sex abuse allegations at a music school may be extradited from the US, it was reported last night.

Greater Manchester Police have allegedly passed a file on 56-year-old Chris Ling, who moved to Los Angeles in the 1990s, to the Crown Prosecution Service.  

Officers are investigating claims by more than 30 women that they were abused at Chetham's School of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music, both in Manchester.

Mr Ling has refused to comment on the matter.

Ten key suspects had been identified in the wide-ranging inquiry called Operation Kiso, investigating suspects who either taught at Chetham's, the RNCM or privately.
