Arrest in Savile inquiry

An 82-year-old man from Berkshire has been arrested on suspicion of sexual offences as part of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse investigation, the Metropolitan Police said.

The pensioner is one of 11 people arrested so far under Operation Yewtree - the Met's investigation into alleged offending by Savile and "others".

A Scotland Yard spokesman said that the man, who has not been named, was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at an address in Berkshire. He has been bailed until May, while further inquiries are carried out.
