IPCC asks North Yorkshire Police to investigate force's relationship with Jimmy Savile

The Independent Police Complaints Comission has asked North Yorkshire Police to investigate if any of their officers could face potential misconduct charges over their relationship with disgraced TV presenter Jimmy Savile.

The shamed DJ is said to have abused at least eight victims in the county, where he had a home in Scarborough. The IPCC has asked the force to review whether there were "conduct matters that should be referred" to them in relation to Savile.
