Today Manchester-based law firm Pannone said it had received allegations that Savile had assaulted a 10-year-old boy while the boy was at Haut de la Garenne children's home in Jersey.

Solicitor Alan Collins said:

This is an allegation of a serious sexual assault on a vulnerable young man.

I would urge other victims and anyone who has information regarding alleged abuse by Jimmy Savile to come forward.

Any information would be treated in the strictest confidence.
