Jimmy Savile's former BBC radio producer Wilfred De’ath who was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a well-known British actress has insisted that he is a victim of ‘mistaken identity’.
De’ath, 75, was arrested at his bedsit flat in Cambridge as part of the police investigation into child abuse by Jimmy Savile.
“Now I realise how Lord McAlpine must feel," he said. Mr De’ath, was held for around five hours at a Parkside police station in Cambridge before he was freed on police bail and taken back to his home pending further inquiries.
Police have confirmed 500 people have come forward as victims of Jimmy Savile.
The investigation into the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal has cost around £2 million so far according to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
Jimmy Savile thought he was "untouchable" and would regularly walk in on Broadmoor patients while they were in the bath, it's been claimed.
