Gambaccini on being accused and cleared of child abuse

On September 15, veteran radio DJ Paul Gambaccini released his memoir of the year he spent under investigation by the Met Police's Operation Yewtree, before he was exonerated of the allegations.

Mr Gambaccini said he was attacked in the press, unable to work, and forced to pay tens of thousands of pounds in legal fees during a year in which he had no income.

"It is a tactic of the police to call out and ask if people would like to make accusations...Under this mutation of the British Justice system, which has occurred from the centuries old internationally respected, objective evidence based system, into the subjective rumour and accusation based system, there can be no evidence. Only people who agree", said Mr Gambaccini.
