Thirteen New Savile Abuse Investigations Underway

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has confirmed that 41 NHS organisations are now investigating allegations of abuse by former BBC presenter Jimmy Savile.

It is understood that some of the 28 hospitals who in June published the findings of investigations into abuse, have now begun new investigations, alongside eight new hospitals and one ambulance service.

Savile, who died in 2011 aged 84, is thought to have abused countless victims across dozens of hospitals.

Results of new investigations are expected to be published in January.
