A retired teacher accused of sexually assaulting boys at a school that taught future Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been charged with crimes in South Africa.

David Price, 76, who is fighting extradition to the UK, is facing court after an ex-pupil who heard an investigation against him on BBC Radio 4’s In Dark Corners contacted reporter and alleged victim Alex Renton .

The man, who was tutored by Mr Price at Cape Town’s Western Province Prep School after he returned to South Africa in the 1980s, told police the teacher groped him in the shower in 1985 when he was 10.

“From that day on, he invented situations to get me alone,” he said, adding that he was forced to touch Mr. Price’s genitals.

“I didn’t know what was going on. I only remember gagging.

And he said, “Listen, you obviously can’t tell anyone, they won’t believe you.”

Mr Price – who denies all allegations – left the school in December 1987. He is accused of 42 attacks on Ashdown House, East Sussex, in the 1970s.

There is no indication that Mr Johnson was abused.
