Police: Kid's Host, Jimmy Savile May Have Molested 100 Kids, Molested Brain Damaged Patient...

Picked patients to visit his hospital flat. Arguably the biggest celebrity scandal in British history. Gravestone removed............

The headstone at the grave of a British children's television host has been removed after police said Jimmy Savile may have sexually assaulted more than 20 girls over a 40-year period.

Funeral director Robert Morphit said Wednesday that Savile's family had asked him to remove the stone to "protect the dignity and sanctity" of the cemetery in Scarborough in northeastern England. He said the stone was removed in three pieces and will be sent to a landfill.

Savile, who died last year aged 84, was one of Britain's best-known TV personalities.

The Metropolitan Police said Tuesday it had received eight criminal allegations against Savile, including two of rape and six of indecent assault, primarily against girls aged 13 to 16. The force believes there were up to 25 victims.

John Gibbin is the first male to have officially reported an assault by the DJ to the police.

He told the Sunday Mirror that Savile lured him into the back of his Rolls Royce and fondled him.

“He was leaning over me, smelling of cigars and booze,” John, 49, reveals in a chilling interview. “I wanted to cry. I just knew this was wrong.”

The new claims have emerged as the number of women who have contacted police and the makers of last week’s bombshell TV documentary on Savile nears treble figures. Many were aged nine and 10 when they claim the TV favourite molested them at the height of his fame.

Savile, who died last year at 84, is even alleged to have abused girls into his 70s.

We can reveal a British man told Scotland Yard in 2004 he was making trips to Goa in India to have sex with children.

The witnesss said Savile went to villages to pick up girls. But police said they needed more evidence.

A source close to the Metropolitan Police investigation into Savile said yesterday: “The lid has been lifted off now. The ages of many victims is particularly disturbing.”

John Gibbin was nine when his parents took him to a charity sports event at Southsea, Hants, in aid of Stoke Mandeville hospital.

The little Top of the Pops fan spotted the fund-raising DJ’s famous Rolls-Royce parked outside a restaurant with his initials and 247, the old Radio 1 frequency, on the number plate, .

His dad took the picture published above of John standing next to it.

When his parents wandered into the restaurant he stayed outside looking at the limousine... and Savile appeared.

“He was wearing a silky red tracksuit and white trainers. He asked if I’d like to look inside the car. I said ‘Yes please’ and we got in the back,”
said John.

I said ‘Why the back?’ He said he wanted to show me the luxuries inside. The car had smoked glass windows and a privacy screen. He showed me a compartment with brandy and whisky and crystal glasses. The seats were red leather. I was gobsmacked to be in a Rolls-Royce with Jimmy. But he stank of cigars and alcohol.

Then John claims Savile suddenly leaned over, put his hands inside his tracksuit bottoms and fondled him.

“I just froze. I couldn’t speak,”
said John. “When I grabbed the door handle and jumped out he didn’t say anything. I found my mum in the restaurant and I felt safe. I saw Savile about 10 minutes later just walking around the place.

“I was too frightened to tell my parents. My dad would have killed Savile. I bottled it up, but inside I was crying. I didn’t sleep that night.”

After hiding his ordeal for 40 years, John walked into his local police station in Redcar, Cleveland, on Friday and filed his complaint against Savile.

“I felt haunted by it. I live on my own even now... I never married. Jimmy Savile wrecked my life,”
said John. “In 1980 my GP referred me for ­counselling. I told them I’d been sexually abused. I just didn’t say who by. I’m so glad this has come out now. I punched the air when I saw the TV news.

“I never thought about going to ­police because I thought no one would ­believe me.

“I dread to think how many more boys he has done this to. I can’t have been the only one.”

An un-named male school tutor has claimed he was groped by Savile when he was 12, but he has yet to report it.

Meanwhile ­detectives are said to be poised to make arrests. Pervert singer Gary Glitter, 68, may be quizzed over claims he raped a 13-year-girl in Savile’s BBC Television Centre dressing room while the DJ groped another girl aged 14.

A woman is set to tell police the name of a former BBC man she claims procured her for sex with the Jim’ll Fix It star before raping her himself.

And in interviews from the 1970s with the late Radio One DJ John Peel, published yesterday, he told how he was offered girls as young as 13 while working in Texas in the 60s. He said: “I didn’t ask for ID. All they wanted me to do was to abuse them sexually which, of course, I was happy to do.”

Yesterday, Savile’s nephew Guy Marsden, now 59, told how at 13 his famous uncle took him to “paedophile parties” where he believes girls and boys as young as 10 were abused. He said he and teenage friends were asked to befriend the even younger victims, although he was not a victim himself.

The NSPCC said yesterday that any victims needing support should call them on 0808 800 5000.”

Jimmy Savile 'Molested Brain-Damaged Patient'

A fresh claim is made that Sir Jimmy Savile sexually abused a disabled patient, as details of the BBC probe into the case emerge.

Sir Jimmy Savile molested a brain-damaged hospital patient, according to fresh claims against the presenter.

Former nurse June Thornton was recovering from an operation at Leeds General Infirmary when she says she saw Savile abuse the young girl.

"She had brain damage, and Jimmy Savile came in and kissed her," she said.

"He started kissing her neck, running his hands up and down her arms, and then started to molest her. Because I was laid flat on my back there was nothing I could do."

It comes as Greater Manchester Police revealed they had received two separate complaints of sexual abuse relating to the late TV presenter dating back to the 1960s.

They have been passed on to the Metropolitan Police, who have so far recorded two criminal allegations of rape and six allegations of indecent assault against the former Top of the Pops presenter.

The BBC has given further details of its inquiry into the allegations, some of which relate to the period when Savile was employed by the BBC and are alleged to have taken place on the corporation's premises.

BBC chairman Lord Patten said the independent review, which will take place after the police investigation, would be chaired by "someone who holds the trust of the nation".

There will also be a review of sexual harassment, bullying and whistle-blowing guidelines at the BBC.

Five police forces are involved in the investigation, while charities say they continue to receive dozens of phone calls relating to the Jim'll Fix It star, who died aged 84 last year.

In total, police are pursuing 120 lines of inquiry. They believe there were up to 25 victims, the youngest of whom was just 13, and that the abuse spanned four decades.

A 2007 radio interview with Newstalk 106-108FM has also emerged, in which Savile denies rumours he was a child abuser.

He strongly refuted the allegations - which had earlier been broadcast in the documentary When Louis Met: Jimmy Savile with Louis Theroux - saying there had been no need to respond.

"What is the point of responding to something if it's not true," he told the radio station.

As police continue their investigation the former DJ's gravestone has been removed from a cemetery in Scarborough at the request of his family. The headstone will be broken up and dumped in a landfill site.

Outlining details of the BBC's probe into the sexual abuse claims, Lord Patten said the broadcaster would consider making another, formal apology - possibly during prime air time - when they publish their findings.

The BBC chair said he did not know Savile but always thought he was "an odd customer".

He backed the handling of events by his new director general George Entwistle, reiterating that at no point had BBC management put pressure on Newsnight not to run an investigation into child abuse claims against Savile.

Nurses knew that Sir Jimmy Savil went on 'ward rounds’ at Stoke Mandeville to find young girls to abuse

The late DJ and television presenter, who raised millions of pounds for the Buckinghamshire hospital’s spinal injuries centre, was said to have taken “chosen ones” to his flat on the site.

Nurses allegedly told one girl to “pretend to be asleep” so she would avoid being picked by Savile, something patients were said to have learned to put up with.

The claims emerged as the number of police forces who have received reports about child abuse involving Savile rose to nine, ranging from Tayside and Cleveland down to Surrey and Jersey.

Scotland Yard, which has described the BBC star as a “predatory sex offender”, is looking into the scandal and believes that there may be as many as 30 victims in offences dating back as far as 1959.

Savile is thought to have molested girls in his dressing room at the BBC but also preyed on vulnerable young people in approved schools, children’s homes and at the hospitals where he worked as a volunteer porter and charity fundraiser.

A former patient at Stoke Mandeville, Rebecca Owen, told BBC News that nurses at the hospital did not welcome his visits.

“It was an air of resignation that you had to put up with,” she said.

“There was some sort of ironic chatter between them about who would be the lucky one to go off to his room.

“And then as one of the nurses was leaving or passing by my bed she leant over and said the best thing you can do is stay in bed until he's gone and pretend to be asleep.”

Savile began working as a volunteer porter at Stoke Mandeville in the 1970s and had free use of a flat on site while he was helping to raise £40million for the hospital.

It has also been claimed that he kissed two underage girls when they were recovering in a children’s ward, and fondled a nine-year-old boy in the back of his Rolls-Royce at a fundraising event.

Savile was once found backstage at the BBC with a 14-year-old girl who was recovering from cancer, it has been reported, while another woman claimed he tried to “groom” her for abuse following a choir performance at Stoke Mandeville.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, has insisted it never received any complaints about Savile and has not instigated a full internal inquiry.

However a spokesman said it was co-operating with Scotland Yard, which is co-ordinating the national response to the scandal.

He said: “Buckinghamshire Healthcare is shocked to hear of the allegations about Jimmy Savile.

“We are unaware of any record or reports of inappropriate behaviour of this nature during Jimmy’s work with the Trust.

“We can confirm that the police have contacted us this week as part of their assessment exercise and we are cooperating with them fully.”

The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust, which is still based at the hospital, is considering renaming Jimmy’s Café on the site.

Sylvia Nicol, a trustee, said: “I feel sad, really. I feel bereaved, really, and just so unhappy.

“I only know that in 38 years I did not see anything like that and if you did you would report it immediately.”

Meanwhile it has emerged that Savile was once asked in a radio interview about rumours that he was a paedophile.

In the interview on Newstalk recorded in 2007, he simply replied: “What is the point of responding to something if it's not true.”
