Patients from two hospitals claim Savile abuse

It's been claimed that nurses at a hospital in the South dreaded visits by Jimmy Savile - and told young patients to pretend to be asleep when he was around.

The TV presenter regularly went to Stoke Mandeville in Buckinghamshire and raised millions of pounds for its spinal unit. Police have contacted managers as part of investigations into sexual abuse allegations.

The hospital says it has "no record" of inappropriate behaviour - but is co-operating fully with the police. And, today a patient from another hospital - Broadmoor - claims they, too, suffered abuse. Reshma Rumsey has been following the story.
