UK police swamped as over 300 child rape victims come forward in BBC pedophile network scandal

Met police commander says inquiry will be ‘watershed’ moment in investigation of child abuse

Police investigating the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal are dealing with around 300 alleged victims, Scotland Yard has revealed.

Commander Peter Spindler said officers were following more than 400 lines of inquiry linked to the victims, of whom all except two were women.

He said investigators had so far spoken to 130 people who had come forward, and 114 allegations of crime had emerged.

Officers were using a “triage” approach, first making contact with victims by phone to get initial details of their allegations.

He told reporters that most of the allegations were linked to Savile, but some involved others who might have acted with him.
