Jimmy Savile abused victim at Exeter hospital, CPS says

JIMMY Savile sexually abused at least one victim at a hospital in Exeter, the Crown Prosecution Service said this morning.

The hospital was one of 14 medical sites where he offended, Alison Levitt QC said in her report to the director of public prosecutions.

The Met Police would not say at which hospital the offence, in 1970, occurred, in order to protect the victim's identity.

Detective Superintendent David Gray, from the Met's paedophile unit, said Savile must have thought about his sex offending "every minute of every waking day":

"Much as I think Savile could turn up at a hospital and expect to be given a warm welcome, he went to a number of schools because children had written to him. His peak offending came with the peak of his success," he said.
Police said the report was the last word on the case and the force would not be going beyond that.

No other hospitals in Devon were mentioned in the report.
