Another obnoxious, vile Kiddie fiddler, with too much Dough… Sorry, shouldn’t joke.
THE son of the founder of North East baker Greggs has been arrested on suspicion of an historic sex offence, according to reports.
Colin Gregg, 71, who is also the former headmaster of King’s School in Tynemouth, was taken in for questioning after police raided his Gosforth farmhouse on Saturday.
Police seized two mobile phones and a laptop from the married father-of-three’s home.
The allegations are said to surround the abuse of a child in the 1960s.
A police spokesman said: “A 71-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and has been released on police bail.”
Mr Gregg, son of Greggs founder Jack, spent 30 years as non-executive director of the bakery business before he retired.
He also set up the Greggs North East Children’s Cancer Run, which takes place at Newcastle Racecourse each year, and has spent time working as a social worker.
