Lawyers acting on his behalf have confirmed he is currently in custody and “will assist the police as best he can” with their inquiries.

The Metropolitan Police said a man in his 60s was detained in Surrey at 7.40am this morning and taken to a central London police station for questioning on suspicion of sexual offences as part of Operation Yewtree, under the strand termed ‘others’.

The operation has three strands, claims against disgraced late TV presenter Jimmy Savile, those against Savile and others, and those against others.

Charlotte Harris, of law firm Mishcon de Reya, said: “Max Clifford is being interviewed by police.

“Mr Clifford will assist the police as best he can with their inquiries.

“When we are in a position to provide further information, we will.”
