A charity which supports people abused in childhood say they have already had a number of calls from "distressed" victims of abuse.
The National Association for People Abused in Childhood said the float featuring people in Jimmy Savile costumes at a festival in the Borders was "crass".
"We've already had calls to the NAPAC support line from people who are distressed by this because every time people do stupid things like this and glorify these crimes, it will glorify abuse - not just Savile victims who will understandably be upset, but other victims of childhood abuse."
