FERGIE CHARITY MAN CHARGED.

The former boss of one of Britain's biggest Royal charities has been charged with indecently assaulting a boy of 14.

Colin Gregg, 55, ex-administrator of the Yellow Brick Road charity, was arrested after the teenager told his parents he'd been interfered with following a golf club trip.

He has been bailed to appear before magistrates at Newcastle upon Tyne next month.

The married father-of-three, who was arrested on April 25, had his home in Newcastle searched and a computer disc removed by members of Northumbria Police's Child Protection Department.

The boy is believed to have told police he was also interfered with in a sauna by Mr Gregg after a cross-country run.

The Duke and Duchess of York are presidents of the Yellow Brick Road, which is trying to raise cash to build three hospices in the north.

Gregg quit the charity in September to set up a business management consultancy.
