FORMER Radio One producer Ted Beston has been re-bailed today pending further enquiries in the Jimmy Savile investigation.

Beston, who worked with Jimmy Savile in the 60s and 70s, was arrested at his home in Shortlands on December 19, taken to a south London police station and bailed until February.

The 76-year-old has now been re-bailed until March pending further enquiries in the Met investigation.  

In a statement released through his lawyers at the time of his arrest, Beston said he was shocked by the allegations.

The document released by Ewings and Co Solicitors said: “What emerged in October 2012 was a side of Savile that Mr Beston never knew.

“Mr Beston vehemently denies the historic allegations put to him by the police.”

Beston, who was arrested under the strand of the investigation termed "Savile and others", became the eighth person to be arrested in the inquiry.

Other high-profile names include former pop star Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and publicist Max Clifford.
