Freddie Starr Arrested In Conjunction with Jimmy Savile Case: Operation Yewtree

Freddie Star has been arrested as Met police continue to carry out the Jimmy Savile Case, Operation Yewtree, Channel 4 News reports.

The Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying "officers working on operation Yewtree have this evening, Thursday 1 November, arrested a man in his 60s in connection with the investigation. The man, from Warwickshire, was arrested at approximately 17.45 hrs on suspicion of sexual offences, and has been taken into police custody locally." The first arrest made under Yewtree was that of Gary Glitter, who was bailed on Sunday (October, 28). Star had previously denied ever meeting Karin Ward, the woman who alleged that he had molested her during the filming of the Jimmy Savile BBC show Clunk Click, but subsequent footage runs contrary to this. A statement issued by his lawyers reads: "Freddie is now 69 and cannot be expected to recollect every show that he has appeared on and to remember every person that he has met," and continues to state: "When the allegation made by Karin Ward was put to him Freddie's first reaction was that he would never grope a women and never has.”

Operation Yewtree’s senior officer has broken down the lines of enquiries into three distinct categories to help deal with the multitude of allegations: Savile on his own; Savile and others; and others. In its statement today, the Met said "The individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'Savile and others'."
