Veteran DJ Dave Lee Travis has been questioned about a string of new allegations of sexual assault.
The 67-year-old was re-arrested by Scotland Yard detectives when he answered bail as part of Operation Yewtree.
It is understood officers quizzed him about up to 11 fresh ‘incidents’ that have come to light.
They are believed to involve several new alleged victims who came forward amid the blaze of publicity surrounding his original arrest last November.
Travis already faces claims from two adult women that he molested them in the 1970s and 80s at the height of his fame as one of Britain’s best-loved DJs.
