Entertainer Freddie Starr has been re-arrested over fresh allegations of sexual offences under Operation Yewtree, unrelated to Jimmy Savile.

Mr Starr was arrested previously on suspicion of sexual offences under the "Savile and others" strand of the operation.

He has denied claims that he groped a 14-year-old girl while in a BBC dressing room with Savile.

He has been re-bailed until a date in June.
