I am very supportive of our hardworking police forces but never have I read such a poor report #savile #WYP

In summary WYP's review of #savile highlights almost complete 'amnesia' or where people remember no report or document can be found.

The quality of this #savile report seriously concerns me & although WYP has totally exonerated itself perhaps the IPCC can get to the truth.

Police's Savile report criticised

Representatives of Jimmy Savile's victims have criticised a report by West Yorkshire Police that concluded that "there is no evidence he was protected from arrest or prosecution" because of his relations with the force or officers.
