    Former TV weatherman Fred Talbot has been found guilty of historical sex offences against boys he took on school trips to Scotland.

    At Lanark Sheriff Court, he was convicted of seven charges of indecent assault in the 1970s and early 1980s.

    Talbot was a teacher at a school in the Manchester area at the time and took boys away on camping and boating trips.

    Sheriff Nikola Stewart asked for background reports and will sentence him next month.

    Talbot, 67, of Greater Manchester, had denied the allegations but was convicted of seven of the nine charges he faced after a nine-day trial.


    He was cleared of two charges - one of indecent assault and one of lewd, indecent and libidinous practices - on not proven verdicts.
