The agent for ITV Granada Reports weather presenter Fred Talbot has declined to comment after the 63-year-old was arrested on suspicion of historic sex offences.
Mr Talbot was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of historic sex offences in relation to abuse against former pupils who attended a school in Manchester between the early 1970s and early 1980s.
Police are now appealing for former pupils from various schools in the Tyne and Wear area, including Saltwell and Slatyford High School, to get in touch with them if they have any information which they believe may assist police.
