Police launch inquiry into Savile's Friday Morning Club
ROSS PARRY SYNDICATION: Police have launched a probe into social visits by on-duty coppers to weekly tea parties held at shamed DJ Jimmy Savile's penthouse flat.
West Yorkshire Police are quizzing members of the predatory paedophile's inner circle over the so-called Friday Morning Club get-togethers which took place at his luxury apartment in picturesque Roundhay Park, Leeds, West Yorks.
In October, the force said it had no information about officers visiting Savile’s Roundhay Park pad, but that "they were free to do what they wished when off duty".
But now, it has confirmed that police regularly visited while on uniform duties to "interact more" with the community.
A spokeswoman said there was no evidence of wrongdoing by any force employees past or present but added: "We are now carrying out further inquiries to obtain a better understanding of the circumstances surrounding the contact between West Yorkshire Police officers and Savile at the so called Friday Morning Breakfast Club."
The police spokeswoman said the enquiries were to establish "the nature of the relationship" between officers and Savile.
