Ex-policeman investigated over Savile interview

A transcript of an interview with Jimmy Savile by Surrey Police in 2009, in which he repeatedly denied abusing young girls, has been condemned by victims' groups.

In another development, a former West Yorkshire policeman is being investigated by a police watchdog over claims he intervened on behalf of Savile.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is looking into whether the ex-inspector inappropriately contacted Surrey Police ahead of the police interview with the entertainer in 2009.

David Sillito reports.
