Councillors in Scarborough have voted to remove Jimmy Savile's name from the honour board in the town for those granted freedom of the borough.
The television star was made a freeman of Scarborough in 2005.
The council decided to vote on whether or not to keep Savile's name on the board after allegations of sex abuse emerged about the former TV presenter.
The decision about whether to remove Jimmy Savile's name permanently from the board will be taken once the police inquiry into his activities is over.
