LONDON Police investigating allegations linked to Jimmy Savile and others have arrested a 65-year-old on suspicion of sexual offences.

The unnamed man was detained at a house in South London.

The allegations are not directly related to any of Savile’s offences, police said.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “He falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed ‘others’. We are not prepared to discuss the matter further.”

Scotland Yard is leading a national investigation, called Operation Yewtree, into allegations against disgraced television presenter Savile and a number of other high-profile figures.

They have separated the inquiry into three strands: claims against Savile, those involving Savile and others and those involving others.

Most of the allegations relating to “others” have been made against people associated with the entertainment industry, including ex-glam rocker Gary Glitter and comedian Freddie Starr.

Others in the  high-profile names arrested in connection with the investigation are punlic relations consultant Max Clifford, presenter  Dave Lee Travis and former television producer Wilfred De’Ath, who all deny any wrongdoing. Gary Glitter, 69, whose real name is Paul Gadd, has not yet made a statement.

So far, 589 people have come forward with information relating to the scandal, with 450 saying they were sexually abused by former Top of the Pops presenter Savile.
