Publication of report into Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall's decades-long campaigns of abuse at the BBC is delayed

The publication of a report into how Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall carried out campaigns of abuse over decades at the BBC has been delayed - so police can finish their own inquiries.

Dame Janet Smith's report interviewed 775 people as part of the investigation and is expected to uncover hundreds of victims and reveal a culture of ignorance which 'protected' Savile.

The report, which interviewed 375 witnesses in connection with Savile and more than 100 about Hall, was due to be published in the second half of this month, but has been postponed at the request of the Metropolitan Police.

A statement released today by the review team said the report was 'now finished' two years after it started.  (more...)
