Fresh allegations about Sir Jimmy Savile have been made by a woman who lives near York.
Jane Thornton, who's 80, says she saw the broadcaster kiss and grope a vunerable patient at
Leeds General Infirmary in the 1970s.
The latest claims are made in an article in the York Press and add to the ones made in the ITV1 documentary on Wednesday night.
Jane Thornton, who used to be a nurse in York, was a patient herself at the time of the alledged incident.
She said she was in no doubt it was Jimmy Savile and that nothing was done when she reported it.
Meanwhile the Metropolitan Police have said they will take a national lead on assessing the growing number of claims about the DJ. .
