THREE women in Cheshire have made complaints of sexual assault against Jimmy Savile and one other unnamed celebrity.
Cheshire Constabulary has received three complaints from women in the county since a raft of allegations of sexual assault were made against the late star in an ITV programme.
Spokeswoman Rachel Hayes said: “These are historical incidents which happened in other areas of the country. Two are in connection with Jimmy Savile and one is in connection with another celebrity.
“All information has been referred to the Metropolitan Police Operation Yewtree team.”
The Metropolitan Police are following 400 lines of inquiry as part of the investigation into claims Savile abused 300 children and young people over a period of six decades.
The former Radio 1 DJ, who as presenter of Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It was a household name in the 1970s and 1980s, died last October aged 84.
Met Police Commander Peter Spindler described Savile as one of the most prolific sex offenders in recent history.
Cheshire Constabulary had issued details of how to make an allegation on its website, and advised victims of historic sexual abuse to call them on 101 or the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000.
