lower profile ones like Stuart Hall it is more believable, but Jimmy Savile?! - people had been wanting to pin something on him for years. Surely someone could have come out with enough to secure a conviction before he died like they'd done with Hall! Something doesn't add up.

Jimmy Savile was often used in cancer charity adverts in The Dalesman magazine many years back. The photo with this is an advert from the May 1975 issue. Other regularly used Yorkshire celebrities included Charlie Williams, Ernie Wise and Michael Parkinson.

It's been well known for at least 30 years, but nobody ever formally complained to the police. Strange, isn't it.
Young 'uns that have no interest in the history of the place they grew up in....disgraceful.

Dozens of people complained to the police , they weren't believed, which is probably why more people don't report it. Even now when it is beyond any reasonable doubt people don't believe them.

It is reported in the Yorkshire Evening Post (YEP) today (August 3 2013) that the National Coal Mining Museum near Wakefield is trying to record stories about the Yorkshire-based Bevin Boys that were conscripted to work in the coal mines during the Second World War. In an editorial comment in the YEP it states "It is high time that these often misunderstood war heroes received the credit, and gratitude, they deserve".

In information in the online Wikipedia website it states of Jimmy Savile "During the Second World War he was conscripted to work as a Bevin Boy at South Kirkby Colliery in West Yorkshire, where he suffered serious spinal injuries in an explosion and spent a long period recuperating". In view of what has been brought up since his death I wonder if he will get any mention?
