The New Scotland Yard sign stands outside the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, in central London on January 11, 2013, following the report by the Metropolitan Police and NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) detailing 50 years of allegations of sexual abuse by former BBC presenter Jimmy Savile. British police said that late BBC star presenter Jimmy Savile was a predatory sex offender whose victims were as young as eight and who preyed on children and adults in hospitals and even a hospice. A report by police and child protection authorities found that the TV presenter, who was one of the biggest TV stars in Britain in the 1970s and 1980s, used his celebrity status to 'hide in plain sight'.
