The trial of a former teacher and media personality accused of seven charges of historic sex abuse relating to schoolboys is due to start tomorrow.

Simon Warr, 60, of Hounslow, has denied three charges of committing an act gross indecency towards a child between 1980 and 1983 and four offences of indecent assault between 1981and 1993.

The alleged offences are against three boys at schools in Great Finborough and Holbrook when Warr was a teacher at those schools. The boys were aged under 16.
