Savile Police Arrest Man Over 'Sex Offences'
An 80-year-old man has been arrested as part of the investigation prompted by sexual abuse claims against Jimmy Savile.
Officers working on Operation Yewtree arrested the man in south London on suspicion of sexual offences, before releasing him on bail until October.
The investigation has been run in three strands - those involving Savile, those involving Savile and others, and those involving others.
The latest arrest comes under the category of Savile and others.
A number of celebrities have been arrested as part of the operation, including former pop star Gary Glitter, comedians Jim Davidson and Freddie Starr, and TV artist Rolf Harris.
All deny any wrongdoing and are on police bail.
So far, two people have been charged in separate cases - driver David Smith, who is due to face trial in October, and high profile publicist Max Clifford, who will be tried in March.
Prosecutors have received full files of evidence in relation to DJ Dave Lee Travis, Davidson and a 53-year-old man who was arrested on January 2.
They have given early investigative advice to police in relation to Harris, Starr and Glitter.
