The Granada presenter Fred Talbot has been released on bail after being questioned over allegations of historic sexual abuse at a school in Greater Manchester.

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

The offences relate to his time as a teacher at Altrincham Grammar School between the early 1970s and early 80s, while the four alleged victims were pupils.
