Women claiming they were abused by Jimmy Savile at a girls' school were "delinquents" who were "looking for money" with the allegations, their former headteacher has said.

"They had an opportunity to tell anybody. But it suited them - some of them, not all of them - to wait 30 years," Margaret Jones, head of Duncroft Approved School in the 1970s, told the Daily Mail.

"They're all looking for money... they come out of the woodwork for money. I object to my school being targeted."

She labelled the claims "wild allegations by well-known delinquents".
