Police investigating the abuse scandal surrounding Jimmy Savile have made a further arrest as they revealed the number of potential victims has risen to 450.
A man in his 60s, from Bedfordshire, was held this morning on suspicion of sexual offences and is being questioned.
Scotland Yard said the allegations against him do not directly involve Savile, and are classed under the strand of their investigation termed "others".
So far, around 450 potential victims have come forward and 200 allegations of sexual assault have been made.
This has risen from around 300 possible victims the force were dealing with last month. The vast majority of allegations have been made against Savile. Officers are looking at three strands within their inquiry: claims against Savile, those against Savile and others, and those against others.
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.
