Hospital board to hear update on Savile probe

First published in Local news

The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust board will be given an update on Jimmy Savile investigations at its meeting today.

A report by police and the NSPCC revealed the disgraced DJ assaulted a victim at High Royds Psychiatric Hospital in Menston, Leeds General Infirmary, one at St James’s Hospital and one at Dewsbury Hospital.

The attack at High Royds happened in 1989, a year after Savile attended the institution's centenary celebrations.

The findings of Operation Yewtree show a total of 450 people have alleged sexual abuse against Savile since his death.
