A FORMER headmaster of London Mayor Boris Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of historic sex assaults.
The suspect, confirmed by sources as 69-year-old Clive Williams, was also questioned by officers on Wednesday over allegations of child neglect.
Mr Williams was headmaster at Ashdown House Preparatory School in Forest Row, East Sussex, for more than 25 years before leaving in 2003.
A computer and documents were seized by police investigating the claims against Mr Williams before he was freed on police bail on the same day. He has not been charged.
Sussex Police have contacted 20 people who have reported sexual and physical offences against them by school staff.
Founded in 1843, the 125-pupil Ashdown House School has been owned by the Cothill Educational Trust since 2009.
In January, the Cothill Educational Trust issued a statement saying it might face legal proceedings over allegations of abuse dating back up to 40 years.
