Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, is due to announce a series of changes in how police and the criminal justice system treat victims of child sex abuse in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
Mr Starmer said the scandal raised some "fundamental questions" on how the justice system approaches victims. He said:
"We cannot afford another Savile moment in five or 10 years' time. Whatever approach is now agreed it has to be fully informed, coherent, consistently applied across the country and able to withstand the test of time."
