At least 22 pupils and one visitor at Duncroft Approved School in Staines, Surrey, were sexually abused by Jimmy Savile in the 1970s, a report by Surrey Police has concluded.

The force has concluded its investigations into the activities of the TV personality who was given "unrestricted and largely unsupervised" access to Duncroft School in Staines, Surrey, which he visited at least 16 times between 1974 and 1979 and even stayed overnight on two occasions.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced in December last year that no charges would be made against former staff members following the police investigation to find if anyone was complicit in the abuse.
