Newspaper advertisements have been published telling people who claim they were sexually abused by television presenter Jimmy Savile how to apply for compensation.

Around 140 people have come forward to say they were abused by the DJ and entertainer, who died in October 2011 aged 84.

The compensation scheme was approved following a ruling at the High Court in February.
