Former BBC Director-General George Entwistle has suggested the Pollard Report has exonerated him of involvement in the decision to shelve Newsnight's Jimmy Savile investigation.
[The Pollard Report makes it] clear that I played no part in determining the fate of the Newsnight exposé on Jimmy Savile.
I had no involvement whatsoever in the decision not to broadcast the piece and at no time did I seek to influence the decision or have any impact on it.
The decision to drop the BBC Newsnight investigation into the Jimmy Savile sexual abuse claim was "flawed", according to a review.
A damning report into the BBC's Jimmy Savile investigation has revealed George Entwistle was previously warned about his "darker side".
