Jimmy Savile, British media personalty, abused over 450 kids

Police missed three chances to take case to trial, DPP admits
Savile abused children as recently as 2009
450 complaints made to police
Sexual offences began in 1955, report concludes
Abuse was "vast, predatory and opportunistic"

Commander Peter Spindler, head of the inquiry, said Savile had "groomed a nation" and preyed on 450 victims, aged between eight and 47, over a 54-year period. Almost a fifth of his victims were boys.
The report says that 57 alleged offences by Savile happened on hospital or hospice premises, with 33 in TV or radio studios and 14 in schools.
Of the 34 rape offences, 26 victims were female and eight male.

The number of lives affected is staggering. They cannot be cured. Sentences should be much longer.
