NotesNews: "Jimmy Savile, who has been accused of child abuse spanning six decades, was questioned by a senior member of staff at the BBC over rumours about his behaviour more than 20 years ago. As police revealed the DJ and television presenter's alleged catalogue of child sex abuse could include at least 60 victims, Derek Chinnery, BBC Radio 1 controller from 1978 to 1985, said he had questioned Savile directly about the rumours. Chinnery, who was Savile's boss at Radio 1, told BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House: "I asked: 'What's all this, these rumours we hear about you Jimmy?' And he said: 'That's all nonsense'. There was no reason to disbelieve (him)." ... At the weekend Scotland Yard, which is collating reports from 14 other police forces around Britain, said it was pursuing 340 lines of inquiry from 1959 to 2006. The BBC has been sucked into the scandal after it emerged that Newsnight abandoned an investigation into the alleged abuse. The organisation has also come under fire after claims that staff were aware of the Jim'll Fix It presenter's behaviour and failed to take action. ... As well as claims that he abused girls in his dressing room at Television Centre, Savile has been accused of using his position as a celebrity and charity fundraiser to find victims in NHS hospitals, children's homes and approved schools. ....
