Janet Street-Porter was 'aware' of Savile rumours

Broadcaster Janet Street-Porter revealed she was aware of rumours about Sir Jimmy Savile's alleged abuse of underage girls when she worked at the BBC during the late 1980s.

Speaking on BBC's Question Time, she said:

I was aware of the rumours about Jimmy Savile, I was also aware of rumours about other people.

There was a culture, and it was a generational thing, in areas of light entertainment behaviour was tolerated.
