Commander Peter Spindler said Thursday that officers had identified 300 potential victims so far — including two men.

He told reporters police had spoken to 130 people.

Spindler said although most of the allegations relate to Savile, some also include other people who may still be living. He says no potential suspects had yet been arrested or questioned.

The BBC has been rocked by allegations that Savile sexually abused underage teens over several decades, sometimes on BBC premises. Some of the alleged victims have accused other entertainers and BBC staff of participating in the abuse.
