Greater Manchester Police have arrested a man of 65 as part of its investigation in sexual abuse allegations at Chetham’s school of music in the 1970s and 1980s.
The man, a former teacher, was questioned about an assault on a girl of 15. He was released on bail and his identity was withheld.
GMP say they are looking at ten key suspects in allegations by 30 women.
The case arises from the conviction of Michael Brewer, a former head of music at Chetham’s, and the suicide of his victim, Frances Andrade.
