'Savile abuse victims let down by lack of reporting by professionals'

Many victims of abuse by Jimmy Savile and others were "let down by the professionals who were meant to help them", a lawyer has warned.
Alicia Alinia, whose firm, Slater and Gordon, represents more than 70 of Jimmy Savile's alleged victims, has backed a call for "mandatory reporting" of suspected child abuse.
Former director of public prosecutions, Keir Starmer, has suggested that failure by professionals to report such allegations should be made a criminal offence.
Ms Alinia told the BBC that such a system had already been successful in Australia.
