‘The BBC was facing calls last night to open an investigation into Sir Jimmy Savile’s alleged child abuse.
The broadcaster insisted it had conducted extensive searches of its files and had found no record of any allegations of misconduct by the presenter.
But, amid repeated claims that it was an ‘open secret’ about Mr Savile’s interest in young girls at the BBC, critics say the corporation must make renewed efforts to find out the truth, even if it was many years ago.’
