A pupil at one of Britain's top public schools, Charterhouse, has been arrested after allegedly filming boys in the shower.

The 16-year old was interviewed over child porn allegations. His computer and other materials were taken away for examination, after school teachers alerted police.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: "A 16-year-old boy was arrested in Godalming on March 22 on suspicion of making indecent images of a child. Following interview he has been released on police bail."

A spokeswoman for school said: "Charterhouse confirms that a pupil has been questioned by the police about material alleged to have been found on a computer."

It is not known if the teenager has been suspended from the school, which was founded in 1611 and charges more than £30,000 a year for boarders.

It teaches boys from 13 to 18 and girls from 16 to 18.
