Savile report: Mortuary security at Leeds hospital 'was lax'

Dr Sue Proctor, lead investigator at Leeds General Infirmary, says that security at the mortuary where ex-BBC DJ Jimmy Savile worked as a voluntary porter was "lax".

"Allegations about his behaviour in the mortuary are incredibly harrowing," says Dr Proctor, detailing claims of alleged sex acts performed on dead bodies.

Ex-BBC DJ Jimmy Savile sexually assaulted victims aged five to 75, according to investigators.

Dr Proctor says that investigators have no way of verifying the claims about Savile's actions in the mortuary but that controls on access were "not robust".
