Jimmy Savile report ‘tears the BBC apart’: Victims’ fury as findings are secretly handed to Corporation bosses
The findings of the Jimmy Savile inquiry are secretly circulating among BBC bosses – but have yet to be shown to victims.
Sources say the long-delayed independent report ‘tears the BBC apart’ and is ‘much worse than expected’. In particular, it is said to show that abuse on the Corporation’s premises was far more widespread than previously feared during the period Savile worked there.
BBC chiefs are also braced for severe criticism over its failure to act on rumours of Savile’s behaviour towards children and young people.
