Police looking into claims of child sexual exploitation by the late Jimmy Savile and others, have now launched a formal criminal investigation.
Operation Yewtree has so far gathered more than 400 line sof enquiry and over 200 potential victims have been identified.
Though there will be no police investigation into Jimmy Savile, it has emerged that there are living people that require formal investigation as a result of the inquiry so far.
We are dealing with alleged abuse on an unprecedented scale. The profile of this operation has empowered a staggering number of victims to come forward to report the sexual exploitation which occurred during their childhood.
Police have confirmed 500 people have come forward as victims of Jimmy Savile.
The investigation into the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal has cost around £2 million so far according to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
Jimmy Savile thought he was "untouchable" and would regularly walk in on Broadmoor patients while they were in the bath, it's been claimed.
