Savile's chauffeur charged with sex offences

Jimmy Savile's former flatmate and chauffeur, Ray Teret, has been charged with a series of serious sex offences against young girls and will appear at Manchester City Magistrates Court on Saturday.

He is charged with a total of 32 offences involving 15 different victims who accuse him of sexual abuse between 1962 and 1996, committed primarily in the Greater Manchester area.

Teret is charged with 15 counts of rape of a female under 16, one count of rape, one count of attempted rape of a female under 16, six counts of indecent assault of a female under 16, three counts of indecent assault of a female under 14 and one count of gross indecency with a child under 13.

He also faces two counts of conspiracy to rape a girl under 16, one count of possession of extreme pornography, one count of possession of prohibited images and one count of possession of an indecent image of a child.

Teret was initially arrested and bailed in November last year with another man on suspicion of historic rape following an investigation into three separate claims of sexual abuse.

Police: 'This has been a complex investigation'

This has been a complex investigation that was originally launched in October 2012 when an initial complaint was made to Greater Manchester Police.

Since that time, we have carried out extensive and wide-ranging inquiries and interviewed a number of people as part of that investigation.

It has been important those inquiries were carried out thoroughly so that, in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, we have been able to secure a number of charges.

We will continue to support all those women who have come forward and offer them whatever welfare they need through the use of specially-trained officers.
