Savile's flat sold off cheaply

Disgraced BBC presenter Jimmy Savile's penthouse apartment in Leeds has reportedly been sold - for £75,000 less than the asking price.

The deeds for the run-down flat in a development in Roundhay are said to have changed hands for £250,000 after it was bought by a property firm in the city.

The apartment, where Savile was found dead in 2011, was put on the market at £325,000 before accusations of his prolific sex offending came to light.

It was advertised as a property that offered lots of potential but needed complete redevelopment.

Leeds-born Savile bought the flat in the 1970s and it retained much of the decor from the era when it went on the market, including garish wallpaper and carpets and a dated avocado bathroom suite.

It also has panoramic views of Roundhay Park, where Savile regularly went jogging, and a private lift.
