Twitter is awash with speculation this morning over the identity of an 82 year old man who has been arrested on suspicion of ‘sex offences’ as part of the Jimmy Savile investigation.

The unnamed man is the eleventh to be arrested as part of Operation Yewtree and was interviewed under caution in November last year following a search of his Berkshire home.

The individual has been granted bail until May.

Former BBC producer Wilfred De’ath, who was cleared of similar charges after spending months on bail, has accused the police of engaging in a celebrity witch hunt following revelations that just three of the men arrested by Scotland Yard have been charged.
