Man Bailed By Jimmy Savile Inquiry Police
A man in his 70s arrested in connection with the Jimmy Savile sex abuse investigation has been released on bail.
The suspect was held as part of Operation Yewtree - an inquiry into alleged child sexual exploitation by Savile and others.
Police said the man was detained at an address in Cambridge on suspicion of sexual offences, and was taken into custody locally.
He has now been bailed to a date in December pending further inquiries.
The arrest was the third made in Operation Yewtree.
Former glam rock star Gary Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was arrested first and questioned at a central London police station after being detained at his home in the capital.
Comedian Freddie Starr was arrested next. He was detained twice and released on bail for a second time earlier this month, as part of the Savile abuse inquiry.
The 69-year-old, from Warwickshire, was arrested on suspicion of sexual offences.
He has consistently denied any involvement in the alleged abuse.
Scotland Yard is leading a national investigation into former TV and radio presenter Savile, who died last year at the age of 84.
He is now believed to have been one of the UK's most prolific abusers, with about 300 possible victims.
what do you think?
Yay! Another tasty morsel to grease the cogs of the rumour machine. I wonder whose name will have been bandied about by this time tomorrow. Are the police obliged to release every detail within an investigation? If so, perhaps a change in procedure is needed. Interestingly, seven of 15 stories listed to my right here relate to speculation about Savile and cronies and a girl has been murdered with a prime suspect still at large today. Just a thought.

Another jimmy savage story and another sick picture another piece of compassionate reporting agree with Movi the real living crime and this per v gets big billing again
Right, better watch schofield to find out who the suspects are.
Google the suspect you will no doubt come up with who it isn't. They will then be forced to issue a denial and another innocent persons reputation tarnished.
Sure police will let slip details of who he is soon - nothing confidential anymore where police and crimes are concerned
