Lord Chris Patten, the chairman of the BBC trust, has said there will not be a separate inquiry into how disgraced TV star Stuart Hall was able to abuse his victims while working at the corporation.
Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Lord Patten said that Dame Janet Smith's review into the Jimmy Savile scandal would also investigate how Hall gained access to his victims.
"I think to set up a new inquiry, when there is already one which is extremely well-resourced operating, would probably delay arriving at the truth."
He said the corporation was also likely to face compensation claims from the victims of Hall - who has admitted indecently assaulting 13 girls during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
One of Stuart Hall's victims exclusively told ITV News "justice has not been done" after the broadcaster was sentenced to 15 months in jail.
Stuart Hall has been jailed for 15 months after admitting 14 counts of indecent assault, relating to 13 girls aged between nine and 17.
