Met 'open minded' about claims against others than Savile

The head of Specialist Crime Investigations for the Metropolitan Police has said he remains open-minded about the possibility that police may need to investigate allegations that others assisted Jimmy Savile.

Commander Peter Spindler told ITV News that his priority is to collate the allegations in order to see if they can be corroborated and to provide support for the alleged victims.

He added that it appears that it appears Savile had a "predilection is for teenage girls and he has abused his status to get close to them."
