Broadcaster Janet Street-Porter revealed she was aware of rumours about Sir Jimmy Savile's alleged abuse of underage girls when she worked at the BBC during the late 1980s.
Speaking on BBC's Question Time, she said:
I was aware of the rumours about Jimmy Savile, I was also aware of rumours about other people.
There was a culture, and it was a generational thing, in areas of light entertainment behaviour was tolerated.
Jimmy Savile was questioned as a suspect by police investigating the Yorkshire Ripper, according to a retired police officer.
Jimmy Savile's nephew has spoken of the emotional turmoil his family is going through in the wake of the sex abuse allegations.
