Hospital board to hear update on Savile probe
4:18pm Thursday 31st January 2013 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.
