Jim Davidson released on bail by sex abuse inquiry police

Comedian Jim Davidson is one of two men arrested and bailed on suspicion of sexual offences by the Met Police.

Officers from Operation Yewtree, set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal, arrested Mr Davidson in west London earlier on Wednesday.

Mr Davidson's solicitor said his client - who has been bailed to return in March pending further inquiries - "vigorously denies" the alleged crimes.
