Peter Watt, the NSPCC's director of national services, said:
The responses these victims received when they first revealed Savile's sickening crimes makes heart-rending reading.
They were ignored, dismissed, not believed, laughed at and, astonishingly, told in some cases they should feel lucky he had paid them attention.
Half a century on, the world finally discovered just how dreadful his crimes were - something these men and women had known all that time but felt powerless to do anything about.
The anger, frustration and sheer helplessness of the situation obviously damaged their lives in various ways.
But they showed true courage in coming forward once more to talk about their experiences and hopefully they can now start to put the terrible trauma behind them.
