Gary Glitter arrested in Savile-BBC scandal

One-time British pop star Gary Glitter was arrested as part of an investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by the late BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, the BBC has said.

Sunday’s arrest was the first to be reported in a scandal that has already damaged the reputation of the publicly funded BBC and the legacy of Savile, a former DJ who was one of the broadcaster’s top show hosts and a dedicated charity fundraiser.

The head of the BBC’s governing body said on Sunday the broadcaster’s reputation was on the line, and promised to get to the bottom of the scandal.

A police statement said a man in his 60s had been picked up just after 0700 GMT on suspicion of sexual offences in the investigation into “Savile and others”.

The statement did not name the man and a spokesman declined further comment.

The BBC and Sky News identified the man picked up from his London home as Glitter, a 68-year-old who was popular as a glam-rock singer in the 1970s. Footage on both broadcasters showed Glitter, who was not handcuffed, leaving an apartment in central London and being driven away.
