Malaga. National Police officers have arrested a 64-year-old British man in connection with alleged sexual abuse against two seven-year-old girls. The man taught English at a private language school in Estepona where the two girls were pupils, SUR confirmed on Thursday.

The investigation began when the girls' mothers reported the abuse to police, after their daughters told them that their English teacher had been touching them, said sources.

Investigations were launched and the teacher was arrested.

The suspect is married with children and grandchildren and apparently has no criminal record.
