’80S SONGWRITER QUESTIONED OVER CHILD ABUSE

Steven Jolley, who wrote hits for Spandau Ballet and Bananarama, has been bailed until March...

An ’80s songwriter, who penned and produced hits for stars including SPANDAU BALLET and BANANARAMA, is the third man to be questioned in the investigation into allegations of abuse of boys under the age of 16 which hit the headlines in the UK last week.

TV star Matthew Kelly and former Bay City Rollers manager Tam Paton were arrested last week by police, who said they were following up earlier investigations into Jonathan King, who was sentenced to seven years in prison last year after being found guilty of sexually abusing boys.

Yesterday (January 22), Steven Jolley, 52, went voluntarily to Guildford Police Station in Surrey. One of the millionaire’s homes in Hertfordshire was searched last week.

He produced and wrote hits for artists including Diana Ross, Alison Moyet and Kim Wilde.

He was bailed until March 12.
