And another, there will be loads, just waiting for that knock on the door.

TV weather presenter Fred Talbot's home has been searched by police investigating allegations of historical child sex abuse.

Police are investigating claims of abuse by staff at Altrincham Boys Grammar School for Boys during the 1970s. No arrests have been made.

Mr Talbot, 63, was a biology teacher at the school at the time.

Police executed a warrant at his home in Bowdon, south Manchester, on 11 December.

According to his Twitter account he was abroad at the time.

'Robust investigation'

Greater Manchester Police said it had received three separate complaints.

Ch Supt Mark Roberts said alleged offences happened while the victims were pupils at the grammar school, but not within school grounds, and allegedly involved a member of staff.

Mr Roberts said: "I must stress that once again these relate to [historical] allegations; it is incumbent on us to thoroughly and robustly investigate this matter."

Mr Talbot, who works for ITV's Granada Reports programme, is best known for his work on the ITV programme This Morning when it was hosted by Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

He presented his weather reports using a large floating map of the British isles at Liverpool's Albert Dock.

On 10 December, he told followers on his Twitter account that he was sailing in the Atlantic Ocean for six days after leaving Madeira.

Six days later, he posted: "Land at last. After six days at sea St Kitts."

Mr Talbot was not immediately available for comment.

His agent Dave Warwick confirmed to the BBC that the house raided was that of Mr Talbot, but he is away on a cruise.

He said police had not contacted him regarding the raid and he did not know if Mr Talbot was aware of what had happened.

An ITV spokesman said: "Given that there is a police investigation, it would not be appropriate for us to comment."

And what have we got for today?

I don't believe these people are being truthful.

Good old Fred wouldn't harm anyone.

Hope it's not true. frown

Celebrities seem to be turning into the 'new' Catholic Priests. Wonder if people will start to switch off their TVs in protest like they've deserted the churches!

IMHO I don't think any of these people should be named until they're convicted. Mud sticks and being labelled a paedophile is one of the worst things you can say about a person.

It won't matter if any of these people go to trial and are completely exonerated, their lives will never be the same because they'll always be associated with this.
