The IPCC is investigating claims a former police officer "acted on behalf" of Jimmy Savile before he was questioned over alleged sex crimes.
Surrey Police have released a transcript of a 2009 interview with Jimmy Savile in which he answers a string of allegations of sexual abuse.
West Yorkshire Police have just published a review giving more details about the forces' relationship with the broadcaster Jimmy Savile.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced a further 19 hospitals are to be investigated in relation to links with Jimmy Savile.
The hospitals to be investigated are:
- Barnet General Hospital
- Booth Hall Children's Hospital
- De La Pole Hospital
- Dryburn Hospital
- Hammersmith Hospital
- Leavesden Secure Mental Hospital
- Marsden Hospital
- Maudsley Hospital
- North Manchester General Hospital
- Odstock Hospital
- Pindersfields Hospital
- Prestwich Psychiatric Hospital
- Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead
- Royal Free Hospital, London
- Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle
- Seacroft Hospital, Leeds
- St Mary's Hospital, Carshalton

A further 19 hospitals are to be investigated in relation to links with Jimmy Savile, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said today.
A 78-year-old man has been charged with rape and indecent assault in connection with incidents at several hospitals including Stoke Mandeville in the 1970s and 1980s.
Michael Salmon, from Wood Green in Hampshire, was arrested as part of the Metropolitan Police Service's Operation Yewtree which was set up following the Jimmy Savile allegations.
He was arrested today and later charged with one count of rape and four counts of indecent assault by Thames Valley Police.
The charges relate to incidents involving four victims between 1972 to 1985 at hospitals in the Aylesbury area.
Salmon will appear at Aylesbury Magistrates' Court on December 17.
Cardiff Royal Infirmary has been named as another hospital under investigation as part of inquiries into sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile on NHS premises.
Health Minister Norman Lamb said the hospital had been added to the list of hospitals currently being investigated.
Last month, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he had asked police to review all of the evidence before relevant information is passed on to investigators.
Earlier this year, the CPS admitted this was a missed chance to charge Savile while he was alive, because victims were not taken seriously enough.
Alison Levitt QC found that "had the police and prosecutors taken a different approach" prosecutions could have been possible in relation to three victims.
Two Sussex Police detectives who dealt with a sex crime claim against Jimmy Savile in 2008 have been referred to the IPCC police watchdog.
A woman came forward in March 2008 to claim that disgraced television presenter Savile assaulted her in a caravan in around 1970 when she was in her early 20s.
This was referred to prosecutors with three other allegations against the performer received by Surrey Police, but in 2009 the Crown Prosecution Service decided no action could be taken.
The law must be changed to require child abuse allegations to be reported, a lawyer who represents dozens of Savile victims has said.
Abuse lawyer Liz Dux, of Slater & Gordon, welcomed the recent shift in attitudes towards child abuse, but said "there is so much more that needs to be done to make sure evil like this can never prosper again."
"It is vital lessons are learnt and our clients are determined that something positive comes out of the terrible abuse they suffered."
Ms Dux expressed her support for the proposal of a law change made by former director of public prosecutions Keir Starmer.
She said: "We are now calling on the Government to introduce legislation whereby those in regulated activities who have direct knowledge of abuse and fail to do the right thing and report it will face prosecution."

A 71 year-old-man was re-arrested in connection with historic sexual offences against children when he answered his bail on Wednesday October 23.
He was also further arrested in connection with a number of other historic sex offences against children.
He remains in police custody for questioning.
Jimmy Savile's former flatmate and chauffeur has been arrested over fresh allegations of historic sex abuse against children.
