Another victim has come forward and told police she was sexually abused by Jimmy Savile – twice.
The unnamed woman, who is now in her 50s, has told Cambridgeshire Constabulary she was abused by the late TV presenter when she was at school in the 1970s.
She claims Savile took advantage of her on two occassions at the now closed Duncroft Approved School for Girls in Staines, Middlesex, where he was a regular visitor.
Savile was questioned in 2007 over allegations of abuse at the school, but the Crown Prosecution Service advised there was insufficient evidence to bring any charges.
The woman, from Cambridgeshire, has now reported her allegations to police.
A Cambridgeshire Constabulary spokeswoman yesterday said they have passed the case to the Metropolitan Police who are investigating the alleged string of abuse.
She said: “We have received one complaint against Jimmy Savile.
“The allegations relate to two incidents in Middlesex during the 1970s.
“The victim, a Cambridgeshire woman, has spoken to officers and the case will
be passed to the Met Police.”
Other pupils, who were also at Duncroft school, a children’s home, have waived their anonymity and told of their memories of Savile offering them sweets, clothes and BBC tickets.
Carole Wells, now 52, said the Jim’ll Fix It star was invited to the school by its then headteacher and regularly offered to take pupils for a ride in his car.
At least five former pupils of the Duncroft school have reported abuse to police and the Met Police has said it has 340 “active lines of inquiry” and 60 potential victims have come forward.
