450 Accusations Made Against Monster Savile

jsThe investigation into sexual offences allegedly committed by the late DJ Jimmy Savile has revealed 450 accusations against the vile predator.

A Metropolitan Police report has seen 589 people come forward with information with 450 of those making accusations against the star of Jim’ll Fix It.

A total of 199 crimes have been recorded in 17 force areas in which the television presenter is a suspect and 31 allegations of rape have been made against him in a further seven force areas.

The report is based on information provided by hundreds of alleged victims who have come forward since October 4, when five women recounted abuse allegedly at the hands of Savile in a TV documentary.

Analysis of the report has revealed that 82% of those who came forward to report abuse are female and 80% of the total victims were children or young people.

So far officers have detained seven suspects and assisted in the arrest of three others elsewhere in the UK as part of the operation.

The Metropolitan Police have said more arrests are forthcoming as Britain continues to be rocked by a scandal that remained a secret for decades.
