COMEDIAN Freddie Starr has been rearrested over further allegations of sexual offences.

The entertainer answered bail today and was arrested for a second time over additional claims.

Scotland Yard said that a man in his sixties had been "further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree".

The investigation is the national inquiry sparked after allegations of abuse were made against Jimmy Savile.

It has been split into three strands - allegations against Savile, those against Savile and others, and those against others.

Starr was originally arrested under the "Savile and others" strand, but the re-arrest was not linked to Savile.

He has denied any wrongdoing.
