West Yorkshire Police says it did not intend to mislead anybody about the number of Jimmy Savile's youngest victims in a report it published on Friday.

The 59 page report said that Savile's youngest victim was only five years old but did not state that he allegedly abused four children of that age. The force says the investigation into Savile's activities is an ongoing process and the figures could change again if other victims come forward.
