Savile was a 'predatory sex offender' say police


Police investigating the alleged sexual abuse of girls by the late Sir Jimmy Savile are pursuing 120 separate lines of inquiry.

The Metropolitan Police's Operation Yew Tree is looking at eight allegations against him, some as far back as 1959.

As a result, his family announced on Tuesday they will remove the former disc jockey's headstone "out of respect for public opinion".

Mark Easton reports.
