Comedian Jim Davidson has been re-arrested over fresh allegations of sexual offences, it has emerged.

The 59-year-old answered bail today after he was held in January by detectives working on Operation Yewtree, the national investigation prompted by the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said a 59-year-old man had been “further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree”.

At the time of his first arrest in January, Davidson’s solicitor Henri Brandman issued a statement to say he “vigorously denied” the allegations.
