A plaque in Scarborough honouring Jimmy Savile is being taken down on Tuesday so that the TV presenter's name can be removed from it.

The wooden plaque, which lists Savile among the Freemen of the borough and hangs in the town hall lobby, will be sent away to be altered.

The decision was taken by Scarborough Borough Council as a gesture of support to Savile's 300 alleged victims.
