Ex-pop star arrested amid UK sex abuse probe

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former British pop star Gary Glitter was arrested on Sunday (October 28) in connection with an investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by the late BBC presenter Jimmy Savile. A police statement said a man in his 60s was taken into custody at approximately 7:15am (0715 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. Glitter, born Paul Gadd, had previously been jailed in Vietnam for child sex offences.
