The Daily Mail reports today that victims of Jimmy Savile are still coming forward, this after police tell the BBC that Savile abused over 1,300 people.
So why, given all the evidence, are there people out there trying to defend Jimmy Savile ? What is their game ?
Anyway, on the 29th October they plan to walk around Roundhay Park in Leeds to show their support for Jimmy Savile. I expect it will be a damp squib but in the event that this does go ahead, I wonder if there are any readers of The Needle living in the Leeds area who can take some photographs of these idiots ?
The NSPCC is still receiving calls from victims of Jimmy Savile a year on from the TV documentary which exposed the serial paedophile’s reign of terror.
Police say there the former BBC broadcaster abused at least 1,300 people over 54 years – but the children’s charity said more were still coming forward.
The charity revealed that publicity over the scandal has led to an overall surge in the number of child victims of sexual abuse and rape contacting the NSPCC.
Over the past year, the number of referrals from the charity’s helpline to police and social services has almost doubled – up 84 per cent – in response to publicity surrounding the scandal.
In June and July this year, almost 600 calls were referred – up from 323 over the same two months the year before.
