Jim Davidson bailed in abuse inquiry

Comedian Jim Davidson and a 54-year-old unnamed man have been arrested and bailed by the Met Police on suspicion of sexual offences.

Officers from Operation Yewtree, set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal, carried out the arrests but said they were not connected to allegations made against the former BBC presenter.

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

June Kelly reports.
