Victim Support, who advises West Yorkshire Police on sex abuse and who have helped Savile victims, has welcomed the force's report but said it is "disturbing" that none of Savile’s victims in the region felt able to contact officers about their complaints while he was still alive
We have supported many of Jimmy Savile’s victims and have seen first hand how much suffering he inflicted on so many lives.
We welcome the efforts West Yorkshire Police has made to be as transparent as possible about its relations with Savile during the years he was abusing girls, boys and young women and its own failures to share information internally and spot his pattern of offending.
It is disturbing that none of Savile’s victims in the West Yorkshire area felt able to come forward while he was still alive and we hope with help from organisations such as Victim Support the force will continue to improve public confidence in its ability to tackle sexual abuse.
