PUBLISHED: 09:53 21 December 2012

Former Radio 1 producer Ted Beston has been bailed until February following his arrest on Wednesday by officers investigating the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.

Mr Beston, 76, of Bromley, worked with presenter Savile on his radio shows and has “vehemently” denied the allegations made against him.

A statement from his solicitors Ewings & Co, of Penge, said: “Mr Beston vehemently denies the historic allegations put to him by the police.

“When the Savile story surfaced in October, Mr Beston made clear then that he was shocked by the allegations.

“For the time being, Mr Beston will be saying nothing further.”

His arrest was the eighth as part of Operation Yewtree, following the arrests of pop star Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and publicist Max Clifford.
