Never in the history of Scotland Yard have so many allegations of sex offenses involving a single individual come to its attention, the British police agency said on Wednesday as it disclosed details of its investigation to date of the late TV star Jimmy Savile. A police statement said that some 450 people have come forward with statements about their encounters with Savile, best known as host of the long-running music show Top of the Pops. Savile is now regarded as a suspect in 199 crimes, 31 of them rapes, mostly involving children. “These levels of reporting of sexual abuse against a single individual are unprecedented in the U.K.,” the police statement said.
