Lawyer Alan Collins, who is representing many of Jimmy Savile's victims, said the report out today on Savile's abuse failures highlights "certain negativity."
He has told Daybreak: "We would like to think that lessons have been learned from all the child abuse scandals in the past, but that does not appear to have been the case."
He added: "Officers who had perhaps not got the necessary experience or not had the proper training had approached difficult cases such as these, with the wrong frame of mind."
A letter received by Scotland Yard in 1998 claiming the DJ was a paedophile was classed as "sensitive", hiding it from other investigators.
From the BBC to the hospitals to the prosecutors and now, it's clear, the police, Jimmy Savile's victims were let down by every authority.
