The BBC has released 19 witness statements into the Jimmy Savile investigation, including Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman who said: "I have to say, I think we make a problem for ourselves by running away from this story."
He added: "We wouldn't even tackle a b***** story that was about our own programme. This is pathetic."
South Yorkshire Police has voluntarily referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) following media reports about the way the force handled the 1984-85 miners' strike in Orgreave.
The force, which said it will cooperate fully with the IPCC, said it anticipates that the body "may take some time to consider fully whether any investigation is required and if so any terms of reference."
