Broadcaster Nicky Campbell has said his alleged paedophile former teacher can no longer 'hide in plain sight' after he was identified on South African TV.

The alleged abuser, 82, lives in a coastal community in Cape Town surrounded by electric fences and security guards, according to The Times.

He has admitted fondling boys at Fettes College and Edinburgh Academy in the 1960s and 1970s but is fighting extradition to the UK, arguing being sent back would be 'too severe a punishment'.

But the former teacher, until now known by the pseudonym 'Edgar', was identified last night on investigation programme Carte Blanche, which revealed his name, picture and where he lives.

Mr Campbell, who earlier this year revealed how the abuse he suffered as a young child had a 'profound effect' on his life, spoke to the newspaper about the unmasking of his alleged abuser.
