Gary Glitter released on bail

The former pop star, real name Paul Gadd, was held in custody at a London police station for 10 hours on Sunday as he was quizzed by officers probing the abuse scandal sparked by late British TV entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile.

Glitter was freed until mid-December as police continue Operation Yewtree, an investigation into claims that Savile abused up to 300 youngsters throughout his long-running entertainment career before his death last year.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police, released after Glitter's arrest, read: "The man, from London, was arrested at approximately 7.15am on suspicion of sexual offences, and has been taken into custody at a London police station.

"The individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'Savile and others'. Not prepared to discuss further."
