DJ Neil 'Dr' Fox arrested on suspicion of historic sex assaults

Radio DJ Neil Fox, known as Dr. Fox, was arrested at the Magic FM offices earlier today (September 30) shortly after presenting his breakfast show on suspicion of historical sex offences. 

53-year-old Neil Fox is a father of three and is well known for being a popular TV and radio personality in the UK. While this arrest isn't part of Operation Yewtree, a Scotland Yard spokesman said detectives searched addresses and properties in Chelsea, West London, and Littlehampton, West Sussex over claims he assaulted two women.

The spokesperson explained: "Officers from Westminster have this morning, Tuesday, 30 September, arrested a 53-year-old man following allegations of historic sexual assault against two women. The man remains in custody at a central London police station. On 30 September, officers searched an address in SW6 and in the Littlehampton area of West Sussex. The man was arrested at a business address in W1."

A representative for Bauer Media, owners of Magic FM, added: “Bauer Media can confirm that Neil Fox, presenter of the Magic Radio breakfast show, was today arrested by Westminster Police. He is currently being questioned about various allegations. In the circumstances Neil will be off air from tomorrow to enable him to devote his full attention to dealing with these matters. All other aspects of his contract will remain unchanged while matters are resolved. We can make no further comment at this stage."
