Gambaccini held in Yewtree probe
Veteran broadcaster Paul Gambaccini has been arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, it was reported tonight.
The 64-year-old BBC Radio 2 presenter was named by his own broadcaster as the suspect arrested by Metropolitan Police earlier this week, as part of the force's investigation into historic sexual offences.
Operation Yewtree is the national investigation prompted after claims were made against disgraced TV presenter Jimmy Savile.
Scotland Yard has led the probe, and separated its inquiries into those involving Savile, those involving Savile and others, and those involving others.
A police spokesman confirmed: " The man was arrested at an address in south London on suspicion of sexual offences and taken into police custody.
"He falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'others'."
Police confirmed another man, aged 74, was also arrested as part of the investigation. Police said they have both been bailed to a date in early January pending further inquiries.
