IPCC investigates Sussex Police officers over Savile

Two Sussex Police detectives who dealt with a sex crime claim against Jimmy Savile in 2008 have been referred to the IPCC police watchdog.

A woman came forward in March 2008 to claim that disgraced television presenter Savile assaulted her in a caravan in around 1970 when she was in her early 20s.

This was referred to prosecutors with three other allegations against the performer received by Surrey Police, but in 2009 the Crown Prosecution Service decided no action could be taken.
