8 April 2015, 12:38

A teacher from Shropshire has appeared in court in connection with alleged historic child sex abuse at a top independent school.

Carol Chandler, 53, is accused of indecently assaulting a boy under the age of 16 in the 1980s.

She was charged as part of the Metropolitan Police's Operation Winthorpe, Scotland Yard's investigation into allegations of sex abuse at St Paul's School in Barnes, south west London - where former pupils include Chancellor George Osborne - and its prep school Colet Court.

Chandler, of Ercall Lane, Wellington, is charged with three counts of indecent assault and two counts of gross indecency on a male under the age of 16 between 1983 and 1985.

Dressed in a smart grey dress, she appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court and spoke only to confirm her identity.

Her case was sent to Southwark Crown Court, where she is due to appear on April 21.
