POLICE have passed details of three "incidents" involving alleged paedophile Jimmy Savile to Scotland yard.

Herts Constabulary would not reveal what it has sent to the Metropolitan Police which is investigating sex attacks linked to the shamed DJ.

A police spokesman said: “We can confirm that we have received information about three incidents involving Jimmy Savile. Information has been passed to the Metropolitan Police Service who are leading on this inquiry.”

So far there have been hundreds of complaints from at least 60 likely victims.

Met officers are working with the NSPCC on an investigation known as Operation Yewtree.

Commander Peter Spindler, head of MPS Specialist Crime Investigations said: “We can now confirm that we have received information from the public that suggest allegations against Jimmy Savile span six decades with reports starting in 1959 up to and including 2006.

“Having now had the opportunity to review progress one week on I have revised my estimate of the number of likely victims to be about 60.

“Once again I want to thank those who have come forward and reassure them, and anyone else who contacts us, they will be listened to.”
