POLICE child-abuse officers have met BBC officials to discuss sex abuse allegations over the late TV presenter Jimmy Savile.

The police said they were contacting all individuals who made claims about the star and should know how many victims there are some time next week.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Officials from the BBC have met with senior officers from the Child Abuse Investigations Command and a representatives from NSPCC.

"We are now collating information gathered from a range of sources across the UK and will continue contacting individuals who have made allegations in relation to the late Jimmy Savile over the coming weekend.

"We do not expect to have a clear picture of exactly how many women may have suffered abuse until next week and want to allow time for victims to reflect on what they may have experienced."
