Pop singer Gary Glitter is to be charged with eight sex offences involving underage girls between 12 and 14.

The Crown Prosecution service confirmed the 70-year-old, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was the first person to be arrested under Operation Yewtree after it was set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
