Report into Jimmy Savile's abuse at the BBC to be published next week


A report into sexual abuse by BBC broadcaster Jimmy Savile will be published by the end of the month, an inquiry spokesman has said.

A statement from the Dame Janet Smith Review said it is expected the long-awaited findings will be made public on February 25, after the report was passed to BBC head Lord Hall on Monday.

It comes after a version of the report leaked last month said another "predatory child abuser" could be lurking at the BBC.

The statement said: "Dame Janet Smith's completed report was delivered by her to Lord Hall, who received it on behalf of the BBC's Executive Board, this afternoon.

"The report is expected to be published by the BBC Trust on February 25, 2016.

"The arrangements for publication will be announced by the BBC."
