THE police in North Yorkshire will not face action in connection with disgraced presenter Jimmy Savile.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) had investigated the force over the contact officers had with Savile who had a home in Scarborough, "in light of information received" online.

Moir Stewart, the IPCC Director of Investigations wrote in a letter to North Yorkshire Police: "I am now able to let you know we have completed that review of all the evidence and material relating to the late Jimmy Savile and have decided to take no further action with regard to your force."
