Starr 'insistent upon helping police to clear his name'

Freddie Starr's solicitor has confirmed he was re-arrested yesterday over new sex abuse allegations:

Mr Starr assisted the police with their enquiries as he has always done in this matter.

He maintains his innocence throughout and has been insistent upon helping the police with their enquiries so that he can clear his name.

We are hopeful that the police enquiries will draw to a conclusion soon at which time Mr Starr will be able to confirm that he has publicly cleared his good name and reputation.
