Max Clifford arrested in sex offences investigation

Max Clifford, one of the UK's leading public relations experts, has been arrested by detectives investigating historic sex offences.

The BBC understands that Mr Clifford was arrested by Metropolitan Police officers working on Operation Yewtree.

Scotland Yard said officers had arrested a man in his 60s "on suspicion of sexual offences" and had taken him to a central London police station.

The arrest is not connected to allegations made against Jimmy Savile.

Matt Prodger reports.
