Jim Davidson arrested again

Comic denies sex allegations

Jim Davidson has been arrested for a second time over allegations of sexual offences.

The 59-year-old was answering bail at a London police station today when he was held for further questioning, the BBC reports.

The comic vigorously denies the allegations.

He was initially arrested in January by detectives from the Operation Yewtree investigation into historic sexual abuse allegations, set up following the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Davidson's solicitor Henri Brandman said 'Several women have made allegations in respect of Jim that date back on average 20 years, one dating back 35 years.'

'The complainants were all adults at the time of the alleged events. Jim vigorously denies the allegations.

'He answered police questions as fully as he is able after this passage of time. He has not been charged with any offences.'

After today's arrest, Davidson was released again on bail until May.
