Savile probe police arrest 82-year-old man

AN 82-year-old man from Berkshire has been arrested on suspicion of sexual offences as part of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse investigation, the Metropolitan Police said.

The pensioner is one of 11 people arrested so far under Operation Yewtree - the Met's investigation into alleged offending by the former disc jockey and "others".

A Scotland Yard spokesman said last night that the man, who has not been named, was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at an address in Berkshire.

He has been bailed to a date in May pending further inquiries.
