Former TV weather presenter Fred Talbot has pleaded not guilty to a charge of indecent assault.

The 64-year-old was charged with abusing a boy aged over 16, who was a pupil at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, where Mr Talbot taught in 1982.

Mr Talbot, from Bowdon in Trafford, previously denied nine other charges of indecent assaults and a serious sexual assault.

He appeared at Manchester Magistrates' Court and was released on bail.

The former weatherman faces a hearing at the city's Minshull Street Crown Court on 23 July.

Mr Talbot is best known for his work on the ITV programme This Morning in the late 1980s and 1990s when it was hosted by Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

Mr Talbot was a regular on the floating weather map in Liverpool's Albert Dock.
