Police investigating the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal have arrested former disc jockey Dave Lee Travis at his home near Leighton Buzzard. The allegations against the 67 year old date back to the 1970s when he was at Radio One, presenting their breakfast programme.

Two women came forward and said that he had allegedly groped them.

He has always strenuously denied the allegations. He said quite openly a few weeks ago that not only did he deny it - but he had never been involved in any inappropriate behaviour and he would be happy to talk to the police about it.

He is the fourth person to be arrested under Operation Yewtree - Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and a 73-year-old man from Cambridge have already been arrested and bailed.
