THE TV investigator who exposed Jimmy Savile’s sex crimes said the cover-up went right to the heart of the British establishment
Mark Williams-Thomas claimed he had obtained new evidence about top figures in society who knew about the DJ’s offending but ignored it, leaving Savile free to carry on abusing.
The 42-year-old ex-police officer, whose ITV documentary finally unmasked the star as a sex monster, made the revelation on Twitter.
He wrote: “Got told some very interesting info on Friday about who knew about Savile’s offending which if can be substantiated as true is shocking.”
The revelation came as lawyers representing Savile’s victims claimed the pervert was assisted by NHS staff.
Lawyer Liz Dux, acting for more than 70 victims, said four have alleged Savile was helped by hospital workers.
He attacked children in a Leeds General Infirmary basement office before his accomplices took them back to the wards.
A victim, who was 16, claims one porter delivered her to the star and another took her back to her ward afterwards.
When she told three nurses sitting at a desk, they laughed.
The victim, now in her 50s, said: “It was apparent they knew what had happened.”
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Some victims have suggested involvement of others in assisting Savile. We are investigating.”
Leeds Teaching Hosp-itals Trust are also conducting an inquiry into Savile’s abuse.
Yesterday it emerged that police may have found the names of another 200 of his victims written on the wall of an old record shop he used to frequent in Manchester.
It would take the number of Savile’s victims to 650.
