Freddie Starr Bailed For Second Time By Police Over Jimmy Savile Sexual Abuse Scandal

The 69-year-old returned to speak to officers earlier on Friday having been first arrested on Thursday on suspicion of sexual offences, and then bailed in the early hours of Friday morning.

His next bail date has not yet been revealed by Scotland Yard.

Starr, from Warwickshire, was released at around 5.20pm.

He has consistently denied any involvement in the alleged abuse.

Last month he branded Savile "despicable" and "disgusting", and urged police to interview him so he could clear his name.

His release came as solicitor Liz Dux said Savile's estate, the BBC and three hospitals - Stoke Mandeville, Leeds General Infirmary and Broadmoor - are facing possible legal action by alleged victims.

Dux, who is representing more than 20 people who claim to have been sexually assaulted, said formal notice had been sent to "all interested parties" of an intention to pursue claims against them.

She said: "Their main objective is to get answers as to why their previous complaints weren't listened to, to get some sort of compensation and to move on with their lives."

Lawyers are also looking into the late presenter's overseas assets, thought to be administered from tax haven the Channel Islands.

Savile's estate, reportedly worth £4.3m, has been frozen in response to the mounting allegations.

NatWest Bank, which is acting as the Jim'll Fix It presenter's executor and trustee, yesterday revealed that the distribution of his assets had been put on hold in anticipation of legal action from his alleged victims.

Savile's relatives said they do not want a penny of his estate and called for the cash to be donated to an organisation to tackle sex crimes.

The late presenter's nephew, Guy Marsden, 58, said his uncle was "a monster" and it was only right that the money should be given to a police-run anti-paedophile unit, and Savile's victims.

Starr's arrest follows that of Gary Glitter on Sunday by officers working on Operation Yewtree.

Former pop star Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was questioned at a central London police station after being detained at his home in the capital.

Savile, who died last year at the age of 84, is now believed to have been one of the UK's most prolific abusers, with about 300 possible victims.

Scotland Yard is leading a national investigation into the television and radio star's activities.

Detectives are following 400 lines of inquiry, while the BBC has launched an inquiry into the culture and practices at the corporation in the era of Savile's alleged sexual abuse.

It is also looking at the decision-making process which saw a Newsnight investigation into Savile's activities shelved. The review, led by Nick Pollard, former head of Sky News, will report back on its findings later this month.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The man arrested yesterday, November 1, in connection with Operation Yewtree - Yewtree 2 - returned on bail today and was interviewed.

"He has been re-bailed to a date in December."
