A VIOLIN teacher has been arrested by detectives investigating historical sex abuse at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester.

Wen Zhou Li, originally from China, was held after violinist Frances Andrade, 48, killed herself after giving evidence in court against the school’s former choirmaster Michael Brewer and his former wife, Kay.

Both were subsequently convicted of sex offences against Mrs Andrade.

Li, 57, now a professor at the Royal Northern College of Music but a former teacher at Chetham’s, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of rape.
