Former health minister Edwina Currie has said she has "nothing to hide" regarding her role in giving Sir Jimmy Savile a role at Broadmoor Hospital in 1988.

Mrs Currie said that notes on links between Savile and Broadmoor were in the archives.

She told the BBC: "The Department of Health is currently digging them goes back at least 25 years, even 30 years and isn't just to do with me at all.

"But as and when documents do surface, they should be published in full.

"I have nothing to hide."
