Former primary school teacher faces sex assault charges

A former teacher has appeared in court accused of historical child sex abuse.

Paul Colquhoun, 70, of Winstanley Road, Sale, is charged with nine counts of indecently assaulting five pupils under 14 between 1977 and 1992.

Police said investigations began after a former pupil at Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary School in Partington reported sex abuse.

Mr Colquhoun was bailed by Macclesfield magistrates until his next hearing on 18 June at Chester Crown Court.
