TV weatherman Fred Talbot convicted of assaulting two teenage boys
V weatherman Fred Talbot has been found guilty of indecently assaulting two schoolboys when he was a teacher.
Talbot, 65, a regular on the floating weather map in Liverpool's Albert Dock for ITV's top-rating This Morning show, was said by the prosecution to be "a chancer" who used his "boundless energy" and "extrovert personality" to gain the affection and trust of his victims.
The jury at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court cleared him of assaulting three boys but found him guilty of assaults on two boys.
Talbot was said to have been "obsessed" with teenage boys throughout his teaching career and "could not help himself" around them when under the influence of drink.
Talbot was remanded in custody and to be sentenced on March 13.
