Jimmy Savile family's 'hurt' over sex abuse claims

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 BBC Radio 5 Live the claims had led to the "total annihilation" of Savile's character.

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

"I cannot make sense of it," Mr Foster added.

Ed Thomas reports.
