Labour leader Ed Miliband said that an independent inquiry is needed to be undertaken against disgraced TV Presenter Jimmy Savile. This time, focusing on his association with the BBC, Stoke Mandeville and Broadmoor hospital and other parts of the NHS, where Savile volunteered and allegations of sexual abuse took place
Ed Milband told ITV that the inquiry was needed to "do right by the victims ,who had suffered "horrific abuse and would be scarred for life" In light of Scotland Yard's investigation, who announced they are now following up 340 lines of inquiry.
Other implicated organisations such as The Department of Health which has faced allegations from victims and from nurses and officials that they felt 'powerless to report the abuse'' Has said it will investigate its own conduct in appointing Savile to lead a "taskforce" overseeing the management of Broadmoor in 1998. Meanwhile, Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust said it would help police if asked to do so.
And The BBC where Savile had worked since the 1960's have been criticised for covering up Savile's behaviour and not following up any abuse allegations. Have said they will launch three separate internal investigations into the Savile affair. The case is still on going.
