The subsequent Pollard Review found that Jones and Mac Kean assembled cogent evidence that Savile had a history of abusing young women and Newsnight was in a position to break the story in 2011.
In January and February 2012, several newspapers reported that Newsnight had investigated allegations of sexual abuse immediately after Savile's death but that the report had been shelved.
Jimmy Savile (1926–2011) was an English DJ, television and radio personality who was well known in Britain for his eccentricities and, at the time of his death, was generally respected for his charitable work. In September and October 2012, almost a year after his death, claims were widely publicised that he had committed sexual abuse, his alleged victims ranging from prepubescent girls and boys to adults.
In October 2012 it was announced that the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, would investigate why proceedings against Savile in 2009 were dropped.
The scandal was a major factor leading to the establishment of the wider-ranging Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse which was announced by the Home Secretary, Theresa May, in July 2014.
It stated that it was pursuing over 400 lines of inquiry, based on the claims of 200 witnesses, via 14 police forces across the UK.
It described the alleged abuse as being "on an unprecedented scale", and the number of potential victims as "staggering".
