Former producer arrested in Savile probe

FORMER BBC producer Wilfred De'ath, who was arrested yesterday on suspicion of sexually assaulting a well-known British actress in 1965 when she was 14, has insisted he is a victim of "mistaken identity".

Mr De'ath (75) was arrested as part of the police investigation into child abuse by Jimmy Savile (pictured).

"Now I realise how Lord McAlpine must feel," he said.

Mr De'ath was held for five hours before being freed on bail. It is believed the arrest occurred after an actress spotted him on ITV's documentary into Savile last month. He is the third to be held as part of the police inquiry into abuse by Savile. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
