Jimmy Savile sexual abuse allegations: infographic

From mental health institutions to children’s home, and covering a period of nearly 50 years, the investigation into Sir Jimmy Savile grows more complicated by the day. So what is alleged?

The government today came under pressure to launch its own independent inquiry, which would add to inquiries being conducted by the Department of Health and the BBC.

The graphic below details the scale, and different elements, of the investigations and allegations against the late radio DJ.
