Nephew of Jimmy Savile 'totally devastated'

The nephew of Jimmy Savile has spoken of his family's "hurt" over the alleged sexual abuse by the late TV presenter.

Roger Foster told the BBC the claims had led to the "total annihilation" of Savile's character. He said he is "totally devastated, I can't understand how a guy who did so much good could have such a dark side".

Police believe Savile could have abused as many as 300 people.
