'People of significant standing will be arrested'

Help

Mark Williams-Thomas also said he thought there could be as many as 500 victims.

Last week the Metropolitan Police said its inquiry into the Jimmy Savile allegations had become a formal criminal investigation involving living suspects and the decision not to prosecute the presenter in 2009 is being examined by the Director of Public Prosecutions office.
