Jimmy Savile: Children in Need had ban - Sir Roger Jones

A former BBC governor for Wales and Children in Need chairman says he had suspicions about Jimmy Savile more than a decade ago and would not allow him any involvement with the charity.

Sir Roger Jones heard of rumours from London staff, and the charity decided not to allow Savile "anywhere near" it.

He said he did not tell management because he did not have evidence Savile abused children while a BBC employee.

Police believe Savile may have abused as many as 300 people over 40 years.
