A man from Cambridgeshire has been arrested on suspicion of indecent assault and grievous bodily harm on pupils at a boy's school in Hartlebury.

The offences were allegedly carried out when the man worked at St Gilbert's Catholic School, in Hartlebury, during the 1960s and 1970s.

The man, who can not be identified for legal reasons, has been bailed until June while investigations by West Mercia Police continue.

The police force launched Operation Quail in September last year investigating alleged abuse at St Gilbert's School dating back to the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

St Gilbert's, which was a school for boys, no longer exists and is now residential housing.

This investigation is ongoing and police continue to appeal for information.

Anyone with information that may help police with their inquiry, is asked to contact West Mercia Police on he non-emergency number 101.
