Police: Fred Talbot offences 'often fuelled by drink'

Ex-TV weatherman Fred Talbot has been found guilty of indecently assaulting two teenage boys when he was a teacher.

The 65-year-old was cleared of eight other indecent assault charges by a jury at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Greater Manchester Police Det Con Chris Doggart said that Talbot was "often fuelled by drink" when he "seized upon opportunities that he had orchestrated to indecently assault young boys".
