North Yorkshire Police cleared over Jimmy Savile contact

Jimmy Savile North Yorkshire Police collated material for the IPCC

North Yorkshire Police will face no action over the contact officers had with disgraced presenter Jimmy Savile, the police watchdog has said.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) had investigated the force "in light of information received", a spokesman said.

Savile had a home in Scarborough, where he regularly spent time.

Following a review of "all relevant material", the IPCC has told the force there will be no further action.

In a letter to North Yorkshire Police, the IPCC's Director of Investigations Moir Stewart stated the watchdog had concluded its inquiries.

He wrote: "I am now able to let you know we have completed [a] review of all the evidence and material relating to the late Jimmy Savile and have decided to take no further action".

North Yorkshire Police declined to comment on the IPCC's decision.
