The men were due to answer police bail in January, but have now been told by officers from Scotland Yard's Operation Yewtree, that they do not need to return until two months later.

They were both held in south London in October over alleged sexual offences that are not linked to disgraced DJ Savile.

Scotland Yard did not name the men, but said: "Two men arrested as part of Operation Yewtree have been bailed".
