Police missed an opportunity to investigate and interview Jimmy Savile after mishandling a woman's report that she had been sexually assaulted by him.
An investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission found Sussex Police missed out on the opportunity to interview the star in 2008 after a woman came forward with allegations that was attacked by the entertainer in a Worthing caravan in 1970.
Investigators found the police "did not follow all lines of inquiry properly".
The IPCC report said: "Although there was no evidence that officers deliberately dissuaded the woman from pursuing the allegation, she felt reluctant to do so following contact with police."
