The BBC has come in for strong criticism over its handling of allegations against one of its late stars, Jimmy Savile, accused after his death of being a prolific sex offender.

A report by a former judge said there was a culture of staff being too afraid to voice their concerns about Savile’s behaviour.

However, the report concluded there was no evidence of a cover-up by Britain’s public broadcaster.

Some victims have rejected the report by former Appeal Court judge Janet Smith as a whitewash, however.

Savile was accused by police of abusing scores of victims, mostly young girls.

The entertainer died in 2011 at the age of 84.
