Fury at Savile report delay

A REPORT into the abuse carried out by Jimmy Savile at a top hospital has been delayed to gather new evidence, angering victims of the late entertainer.

Three major investigations were launched at Leeds General Infirmary, Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Broadmoor Hospital after details first emerged about cases of alleged abuse by Savile in hospitals.

NHS reports into all three hospitals were expected this week, but those abused by Savile at Stoke Mandeville have now been told their investigation has been shelved until later in the year.
