West Yorkshire Police have just published a review giving more details about the forces' relationship with the broadcaster Jimmy Savile.
Coronation Street actor Bill Roache has apologised after claiming that victims of sexual abuse bring it upon themselves.
A letter received by Scotland Yard in 1998 claiming the DJ was a paedophile was classed as "sensitive", hiding it from other investigators.
Almost half of Jimmy Savile's victims in his home county of West Yorkshire were abused in hospitals, according to figures.
A West Yorkshire Police report into the disgraced broadcaster's relationship with the force confirmed officers had identified 68 victims in the force area since his death.
Now the force has released a further breakdown which reveals 29 were abused in hospitals across the region - 23 of them at Leeds General Hospital (LGI).
The youngest abuse victim at LGI was just five, police said.
Savile had a close relationship with the LGI, famously volunteering as a porter and raising cash for the hospital over decades.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs LGI and St James's, is part way through an investigation into Savile's activities.
The Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust says it is investigating claims that Jimmy Savile abused people at hospitals in Leeds. The investigation team has its own website with information about how witnesses can get in touch.
– Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust spokesperson
We set up an independent investigation into Jimmy Savile's association with hospitals in Leeds. This is currently underway and it is expected to report later this year. It would be inappropriate to comment further while that work is still going on."
West Yorkshire Police says that nine of Jimmy Savile's victims were under the age of ten when the alleged abuse took place.
Nine of the victims were between the ages of ten and thirteen, while thirty of the victims were aged between fourteen and seventeen.
West Yorkshire Police say they are investigating 76 offences related to the former children's TV presenter Jimmy Savile.
Former patients at the Leeds General Infirmary, Dewsbury and District Hospital, High Royds Hospital and St James Hospital in Leeds allege they were abused by the Jim'll fix it star.
West Yorkshire Police has confirmed that some of the 68 victims who have contacted them since the death of Jimmy Savile were aged as young as five when the alleged abuse took place.
Officers are investigating complaints that the TV presenter abused patients at hospitals across Yorkshire, with the victims ranging in ages from five to forty five when the crimes were committed.
Mark Williams-Thomas, the criminologist who led the initial ITV Exposure documentary that revealed the Jimmy Savile abuse claims, described the West Yorkshire Police report as "poor".
A solicitor who represents over 40 of Jimmy Savile's victims has told Daybreak that West Yorkshire Police's report on the broadcaster's relationship with the force provides "some answers" but it "doesn't add up" and "begs a lot more questions."
He said: "It seems to me that West Yorkshire Police over the years failed to join up the dots, they had intelligence but something wasn't right."
"Against that background they were using Savile for crime preventions and so on, so they were giving Savile this aura of responsibility again and again, actually by West Yorkshire Police," he added.
Jon Christopher, of the West Yorkshire Police Federation, said people would ask precisely what was "going on" between Savile and senior police officers. He told BBC Breakfast:
I think people will look at it and think 'what is going on there?'. Because clearly he has been involved with a lot of officers and not just police officers, but other professionals as well.
Nevertheless, it's the police officers who are in the light with this one and clearly the lessons have to be learned from that, if he was under suspicion in other force areas that something could and should have been done at that time.
I think the problem we've got there is the people themselves will know what relationships they had and the extent of those relationships and if there is nothing recorded anywhere I think it is extremely difficult to prove otherwise.
Jimmy Savile committed 83% of offences in the 1960s and 1970s when he was aged between 34 and 54, a report by West Yorkshire Police showed.
The report by West Yorkshire Police showed 45% of Jimmy Savile's victims in the area were aged between 14 and 17.
