Savile's sex abuse victims to seek compensation

Over 50 of Jimmy Savile's sex abuse victims will seek compensation from the BBC, the NHS, the disgraced TV presenter's estate and other organisations, their lawyer has said. The scale of the late DJ's campaign of abuse was revealed in a report yesterday.

Savile now has 214 criminal offences, spanning the breadth of the UK, recorded against his name - including 34 rapes. The Department of Health (DoH) and BBC are among a number of organisations embroiled in the scandal and, alongside the late star's estate, could now face substantial payouts.

The DoH and BBC have launched internal investigations into how the entertainer slipped under the radar and was allowed to abuse on such an unprecedented scale.
