Compensation deal for Savile victims

It's thought the BBC is finalising a compensation package for 120 of Jimmy Saville's alleged victims.

According to newspaper reports, the rumoured sum is £4 million or £33,000 each, that's lower than the amount the Corporation paid its senior bosses in the last 12 months.

The BBC said tonight it's inappropriate for them to comment but lawyers representing Savile's alleged victims say that figure would be 'unjust'. Alan Collins is the victims' solicitor.
