Woman 'saw Jimmy Savile abuse Leeds hospital patient'


A woman who was treated at a Leeds hospital four decades ago has alleged she saw Sir Jimmy Savile abuse another female patient who was unable to defend herself.

Savile volunteered as a hospital porter at Leeds General Infirmary during the 1960s and 70s.

June Thornton, who was a patient at the hospital in May 1972, said she was unable to intervene as she was too unwell herself.
