Third man held in Kelly inquiry
Matthew Kelly
Matthew Kelly denies the allegations
Police investigating allegations of child sex abuse faced by the television presenter Matthew Kelly have arrested a third person in connection with their inquiry.

Record producer Steven Jolley, from Barnet, Hertfordshire, was arrested after voluntarily attending Guildford Police Station on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old wrote and produced 1980s chart hits for bands including Spandau Ballet, Bananarama and Kim Wilde, before establishing his own record label.

Mr Kelly, also 52, was arrested last Wednesday, along with the former Bay City Rollers manager Tam Paton, by Surrey Police officers investigating allegations of sexual abuse against young boys.

A spokeswoman for the force said Mr Jolley had been arrested in connection with the same allegations.

Homes searched

It is understood Mr Jolley was scheduled to go to the police station following a police search of a property in Barnet last week.

A Surrey Police spokeswoman said: "Two addresses in Barnet and in Brentwood, in Essex, were searched by Surrey Police officers in relation to this operation last Wednesday.

"The 52-year-old was questioned and bailed until March 12.

"The three men arrested in relation to this operation have been bailed to return to Staines Police Station on March 12."

Mr Kelly, of Chiswick, West London, was arrested at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 15 January, where he had been appearing in Peter Pan.

He was released on bail the next day after being questioned at Guildford Police Station.

The three men have denied there is any truth in the allegations.

Mr Paton was arrested in Edinburgh and released on bail after being questioned at a police station in the north of England.
