Man from Essex arrested as part of Operation Yewtree investigation
A 79-year-old man has been arrested in Essex on suspicion of sexual offences by Operation Yewtree detectives, Scotland Yard said.
He was held by officers working on the investigation into historical sex crimes, launched in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
The Metropolitan Police said the arrest fell under the strand of the operation known as “others”, and the man has been released on bail until early December.
He is the 19th person arrested under the Yewtree investigation.
