Sir Jimmy Savile was investigated during an inquiry into abuse at a Jersey children's home, police said.

The three-year inquiry into child abuse at Haut de la Garenne heard allegations that the Leeds-born DJ was involved in an indecent assault in the 1970s.

The States of Jersey Police said there was insufficient evidence for the investigation to proceed.

Sir Jimmy died last year aged 84, and was never charged with any abuse offences.

A police spokesman said: "During the course of the States of Jersey Police's historic abuse investigation a complaint of indecent assault said to have occurred during the 1970s at the former children's home Haut de la Garenne was received.

"The allegation was investigated but there was insufficient evidence to proceed."
Seven prosecuted
A three-year long £7.5m investigation by Jersey police into historic child abuse in the island's care homes began after allegations of abuse at former children's home Haut de la Garenne.

From September 2007, police took 1,776 statements from 192 alleged victims, identifying 151 alleged abusers.

Seven people were successfully prosecuted.

Since his death, a number of allegations have surfaced against Sir Jimmy, none of which have been proven.

An ITV1 documentary, Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, to be shown on Wednesday accuses Sir Jimmy of sexual abuse against under-age teenage girls.

It will show several interviews with alleged victims of the DJ and TV presenter.

One complaint was made to Surrey Police in 2007, but following an investigation no further action was taken.

A women who says she was abused as a teenager in Jersey by Sir Jimmy Savile, has spoken to ITV about her alleged ordeal at the hands of the presenter.

Dee Coles claims she was attacked by Sir Jimmy Savile whilst on holiday in Jersey.

She alleges that the Jim'll Fix It host sexually abused her and another girl 40 years ago in his camper van when she was 14 years old.

She says, "I was taken into his van by him on a couple of occasions" and "made to do sexual acts".

"I suppose the compassionate side of me wants to say that he was a man who needed some help," she said.

"The gut reaction is to say there was something really quite evil about him."

Dee Coles said she was going public with her account now in the hope that other women who have made similar claims are believed.

At least six woman have now alleged that the late TV presenter Sir Jimmy Savile attacked them when they were young girls.

Some of the allegations will be aired in a new ITV1 Documentary, Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, which will be broadcast on Wednesday evening.

Jersey Police have released a statement today saying, "During the course of the States of Jersey Police's historic abuse investigation a complaint of indecent assault said to have occurred during the 1970s at the former children's home Haut de la Garenne was received.

"The allegation was investigated but there was insufficient evidence to proceed."

  8. @ anonymous 4.46pm. By your comment you reveal that you are one of the sad people who think nothing of the feelings of those who are abused. It DOES matter that this happened to these poor girls, and perhaps you should do some research in to Savilles claims that he was untouchable before making such statements. Perhaps it is only now that this beast is dead, that these woman feel safe enough to go public and tell what has happened to them. I think that much more will come in to the public domain as other elderly celebrities die. Unfortunately, our society in Jersey will still try to silence victims.

  9. It is difficult for those who lack compassion to fully understand right and wrong. You can't teach a conscience.
