A new report has uncovered a series of sickening attacks on ill children by late entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile at a hospital in England.

The Dj and Bbc broadcaster was unmasked as a serial paedophile following his death in 2011, with a police investigation uncovering more than 450 cases of sexual abuse.

It subsequently emerged that he had molested hospital patients after being given access to wards and mental health facilities in England, and a report published last year (14) uncovered a series of incidents at Leeds General Infirmary in the north of England.

A new report has now revealed Savile also targeted patients at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, England, suggesting he targeted both patients, visitors and volunteers there.

The report, put together by Dr Androulla Johnstone and Christine Dent for the NHS Health and Social Care Advisory Service, reveals six young children were abused by Savile while they were undergoing treatment at the hospital, while another young girl, aged eight or nine, was raped 10 times by the star when she visited the hospital where her relatives worked.

The report concluded officials failed to properly investigate a number of complaints about Savile's behaviour, which dated back to 1972, and recommended hospitals should adopt a policy for dealing with celebrity visits so they are properly managed in future.
