A former TV newsreader from Lincolnshire who claims to have seen Jimmy Savile grope a young girl has made contact with ITV bosses.

Alan Hardwick says he told his line manager at Yorkshire Television that he saw the Jim'll Fix It host squeeze a girl's bottom during filming in the 1980s.

Mr Hardwick's line manager offered an explanation, suggesting the girl was perhaps a relative of Savile.

And now the candidate for Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner has revealed he has contacted ITV officials.

"I would be more than happy to discuss it with them in any forum they wish and I have told them that.

"If they wanted to take it further then I would be happy to assist them."

    This would be Police & Crime Commissioner is 30 years to late which begs the question, "WHY NOW". This also raises questions on the suitability for the PCC job.
