North Yorkshire Police receive second complaint about Jimmy Savile

North Yorkshire Police say they've received a second complaint in connection with the Jimmy Savile sexual abuse inquiry.

A spokesman said a woman, now living in the Durham area, has reported a sexual offence against a teenage girl in Scarborough in the late sixties. The allegation has been referred to the Metropolitan Police.

It's also been claimed today that Savile was banned from visiting a council-run children's home in Leeds after he molested a 12-year-old girl in the 1970s.
