Fresh Allegations Made Against Dave Lee Travis

Ex-Radio 1 DJ and Top of the Pops presenter Dave Lee Travis has been arrested for a second time, following fresh allegations of sexual offences, Scotland Yard has confirmed.

Mr Travis, of Mentmore, Bucks, was arrested on Monday after answering bail following his first arrest in November 2012 as part of Operation Yewtree.

He has been bailed to return in April.

In a statement, a Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: "A man in his 60s who we term 'Yewtree Four' returned bail on 11 March and was interviewed.

"The man in his 60s was further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree."

At the time of his first arrest, 67-year old Mr Travis denied any wrongdoing and stressed that the allegations against him had nothing to do with children.
