14:13 17 December 2012

Two men arrested in connection with the investigation into sex abuse allegedly carried out by Jimmy Savile and others, have been re-bailed until next year.

Comedian Freddie Starr and publicist Max Clifford have been re-bailed to return on dates in February and March.

Starr, 69, was arrested in Warwickshire on November 1 as part of Operation Yewtree.

PR guru Clifford was arrested on December 6 at his Surrey home on suspicion of sexual offences.

He described the allegations as “damaging and totally untrue”.

A Scotland Yard spokesman today said: “Two men arrested as part of Operation Yewtree have been rebailed to return pending further inquiries.

“A man in his 60s, who was arrested on November 1, has been rebailed to return on a date in March pending further inquiries.

“A second man in his 60s, who was arrested on December 6, has been rebailed to return on a date in February pending further inquiries.”
