A former BBC producer from Cambridgeshire who was released without charge after being arrested by detectives investigating the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal said the police operation had "gone too far".
Wilfred De'ath was one of 11 people arrested so far under Operation Yewtree, a national probe prompted by allegations that emerged against Savile, but the Crown Prosecution Service said on Monday that there was not enough evidence to charge him.
Mr De'ath, who has denied any wrongdoing, said he believed that police were over-compensating now because they failed to get Savile at the time and claimed Operation Yewtree was "getting silly".
"My general comment would be that Operation Yewtree has gone too far," he told the BBC Today programme.
