Four Dorset claims of sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile
Four people in Dorset have claimed they were abused by Jimmy Savile - a new report has found.
The NSPCC have released a report this morning in co-operation with The London Metropolitan Police.
The report into Operation Yewtree shows that Dorset Police received four allegations of sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile.
Peter Watt, NSPCC Director of Child Protection Advice and Awareness said: "We know from the huge increase in calls to the NSPCC helpline about sexual abuse that the problem did not die with Savile.
"Since the Savile scandal broke we have seen a surge in contacts about child abuse, both past and present, with many victims speaking out for the first time."
The report indicates that Savile committed sexual offences at 13 hospitals including Great Ormond Street Hospital. His youngest victim was an eight-year-old boy and 14 offences were related to schools.
Commander Peter Spindler, head of the Metropolitan Police Service's Specialist Crime Investigations, said: "Savile's offending footprint was vast, predatory and opportunistic. He cannot face justice today but we hope this report gives some comfort to his hundreds of victims, they have been listened to and taken seriously.
"We must use the learning from these shocking events to prevent other children and vulnerable adults being abused in the future."
