Pedophile pop star Gary Glitter released from prison
Pedophile pop star Gary Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, has been released from prison after serving half of his 16-year sentence for sexually abusing three schoolgirls.
The disgraced glam rock singer – who had a string of chart hits in the 1970s – was jailed in 2015 for sexually abusing the girls.
The PA news agency understands the 79-year-old left HMP The Verne – a low-security category C jail in Portland, Dorset – on Friday after eight years behind bars.
He was freed automatically halfway through a fixed-term determinate sentence.
