SAVILE COPS ARREST 82-YR-OLD; OAP star quizzed in sex probe; SAVILE ARREST.

Byline: DAMIEN FLETCHER

A HOUSEHOLD-name celebrity was arrested on suspicion of sexual offences by Jimmy Savile cops yesterday.

The 82-year-old, who has not been named, was quizzed under caution by Met Police detectives and is one of 11 people arrested as part of Operation Yewtree into alleged offending by the former disc jockey and Jim'll Fix It star and "others".

A Scotland Yard spokesman said last night: "The individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'others'."

The spokesman said the man was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at an address in Berkshire.

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

Those detained so far - all of whom deny the accusations - include Gary Glitter, comedians Freddie Starr and Jim Davidson, PR Max Clifford and former It's A Knockout star and football commentator Stuart Hall.

Yewtree is an operation examining claims of abuse, most of which occurred in the 1970s and 1980s.

Police say 589 people have come forward with information over the Savile scandal.
