Over the last week we have become very aware of the allegations being made against the late Sir Jimmy Savile.
In recognition of his charity work he received the Leeds Award and his name was inscribed on the wall at Civic Hall. The response to the award was a clear indication of people's feelings towards Sir Jimmy Savile at that time.
In light of the very serious nature of the allegations now made, we will be removing the inscription and have stopped work on other possible commemorations.
Well await the outcome of any investigations before deciding whether any further action is necessary.
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.
A colleague of Jimmy Savile allegedly raped a woman on BBC premises in 1970, ITV News has been told.
