Two women have contacted Gloucestershire Police to claim they were sexually assaulted by the late TV presenter, Jimmy Savile.

One assault is alleged to have taken place in Gloucestershire. It was reported on 4th October by a woman who now lives elsewhere.

The other offence was reported on Wednesday by a resident who said she was assaulted elsewhere.

Scotland Yard is investigating allegations Savile sexually assaulted children and adults at care homes, hospitals and on BBC premises following claims made on an ITV documentary.

"Two complaints have been made to Gloucestershire Constabulary and we have passed them on to the Metropolitan Police who are leading the investigation."
