Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

COPS in­ves­ti­gat­ing al­le­ga­tions of his­tor­i­cal sex­ual abuse have ar­rested a 65-year-old man in south Lon­don.

The op­er­a­tion was set up in the wake of the Jimmy Sav­ile scan­dal but the ar­rest is not con­nected to the late BBC pre­sen­ter.

Scot­land Yard said: “He falls un­der the strand of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion we have termed ‘oth­ers’.”

He is the 11th per­son to be ques­tioned as part of Op­er­a­tion Yewtree.

Ten have been ar­rested and one sus­pect was in­ter­viewed un­der cau­tion.

The Met said they were not pre­pared to dis­close any fur­ther de­tails.
