Smith review finds 72 BBC-linked victims of Sir Jimmy Savile

Retired judge Dame Janet Smith finds that BBC star Sir Jimmy Savile carried out sexual assaults linked to corporation premises on 72 people.

Some of the 72 women, girls and boys were sexually attacked by Savile more than once, Smith says in her final report published by the BBC today. The figure is slightly higher than was in the draft report leaked to Exaro last month.

Out of the 72, 21 were girls under 16 and another 13 were boys, Smith finds. Savile sexually assaulted one girl of only eight, and one boy who was nine.

She also finds that Savile carried out eight rapes linked to the BBC, including a girl of 13 and a boy of 10.  (more...)
