Glitter rebailed in sex abuse probe
Gary Glitter has been rebailed until February after his arrest over alleged sex offences.
The 69-year-old was first held at his home in central London in October last year by officers from Operation Yewtree, the national investigation launched in the wake of abuse claims against Jimmy Savile.
Scotland Yard did not name Glitter, but said that a man in his 60s known as Yewtree 1 had been rebailed until February next year.
The allegations against Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, are linked to the late television presenter.
He was the first person to be arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, which has now seen a total of 16 people questioned by police.
Of those, six people have been told they will face no further action, and another six are on police bail. They include Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and presenter Paul Gambaccini, who all deny any wrongdoing.
The remaining four have been charged - Max Clifford, Rolf Harris and Dave Lee Travis are all facing separate court proceedings, while ex-driver David Smith was due to face trial at Southwark Crown Court but was found dead at his home last month.
