Northamptonshire Police have announced they have received a complaint regarding the entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile, who died in October last year.

In a statement on Thursday afternoon, the force said: “Two members of the public have contacted us making allegations regarding Sir Jimmy Savile, these are not yet substantiated or investigated.

“The incidents do not relate to events in Northamptonshire and we will make appropriate referrals to the relevant Force.”

Other forces across the country have already received complaints against Sir Jimmy from members of the public in recent days.

He was also the subject of an ITV documentary on Wednesday night which contained more allegations of sexual abuse of teenage girls by the Jim’ll Fix It and Top of the Pops star.
