He was arrested on Tuesday under the "others" strand of the Operation Yewtree, meaning the allegations are not linked directly to Jimmy Savile.

Scotland Yard said on Tuesday that two men - aged 64 and 74 - were arrested at separate addresses in south London and taken into custody.

The two arrests on Tuesday are the 15th and 16th arrested as part of police inquiries.
