West Yorkshire Police is facing searching new questions over its role in the Jimmy Savile paedophile scandal.
The police watchdog has begun examining the force's dealings with Savile, as it promises to help expose what it calls "a catalogue of institutional failings" that left the entertainer free to molest hundreds of victims.
And now a retired West Yorkshire Police inspector is being investigated over claims he "acted on behalf" of Savile before the TV presenter was questioned about child abuse allegations. Jon Hill reports.
Scarborough Council bosses are meeting today to strip Savile of his freedom of the borough.
Ex-West Yorkshire Police inspector is referred to IPCC over claims he "acted on behalf" of Savile by contacting officers before interview.
