A report has concluded there was no link between the disgraced presenter Jimmy Savile and the former Dryburn Hospital in Durham.
County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust was one of 28 hospital trusts asked to commission investigations into Savile.
Inquiries focused on an allegation that a third party had lured boys and girls to hotels on behalf of Savile.
The report examined any connection between that allegation and Dryburn Hospital. It found no evidence of any link.
"The investigation has ... not found any evidence of any procurement of boys or girls for Jimmy Savile connected to Dryburn Hospital.
The allegations ... raise the question of whether or not such procurement took place elsewhere in the North East but that is a matter beyond the remit of this investigation."
