A former teacher has been arrested over claims of historic sex abuse.

The 71-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of gross indecency with a child after four men reported being sexually assaulted as children at St Aubyn’s School in Rottingdean.

The alleged historic abuse took place between 1990 and 1995. Pupils at the school, which closed in 2013, were between the ages of three and 13.
