And they stress this is all historical claims... well they are hardly like to find images on his pc from the 1970's ... how many people had a computer back then ??? some of us still had a black and white telly

he wasnt a tv presenter in the 70's .. he was a teacher

I do feel really sorry for all those who were abused by anyone past or present but I think we have to rememer that amongst the genuine there will be nutters just looking to cause mayhem and upset for no reason .. oh x did this to me 40 years ago...

I think the media have to stop putting names out till they have proof of wrong doing .. mud sticks esp when it comes to child abuse

Not at all happy with all these names in the press where no arrest has been made.

I could be wrong but they don't normally search the homes and take away computer equipment of passing bystanders, do they? Especially not ones connected with crimes from 40 years earlier when the only PCs around were walking the beat in pointy helmets.... To save time I'm starting to think they should just round up all 70's TV presenters as a precaution.. hmm

The article said it's part of an investigation into abuse at a school he used to teach at. It doesn't say that any allegations have been made against him. I wonder if any other former teachers' home have been raided too?

Home searched and computers seized apparently.

I can't understand why they've released his name. Has he been charged with anything yet?

Blimey. Suppose we can't speculate who'll be next getting a knock on the door... confused
