Savile, Jaconelli and the Council with something to hide
Real Whitby regulars will know that for some time Real Whitby journalists and readers have been making grave allegations that the former Conservative Councillor, Alderman, Mayor of Scarborough (and close associate of fellow paedophile Jimmy Savile) Peter Jaconelli (deceased) was a paedophile who was protected from prosecution for many years because he was a highly influential Conservative politician, prominent businessman, with close connections to the Police and Jimmy Savile.
Jaconelli is a key figure. He established at the Ippon Judo Club in 1955 and started offending, long before Savile came to live in Scarborough. His close association with Savile ensured he was left alone by the Police. We know Savile rewarded Jaconelli with Television appearances on two or three occasions, that Jaconelli provided Savile with access to his icecream parlours where sexual abuse is known to have taken place, and that Savile visited Raincliffe School. It must surely now be a grave concern that Jaconelli abused his position as Governor to reward Savile with access to local school children.
It appears obvious that knowledge of Jaconelli’s perverted sexual preferences were well known to people locally, school teachers, school children and the North Yorkshire Police. He is even alleged to have had convictions for sexual offences. Yet nothing was done by North Yorkshire Police and he was even allowed to have access to children without restriction.
Given that Savile’s close friendship with Jaconelli had been reported on the BBC, in the press and was common knowledge locally, it is no wonder that North Yorkshire Police were apparently making enquiries about them in the 2003 paedophile investigation.
New information has emerged since my last article concerning the influence both Savile and Jaconelli have with Scarborough Borough Council even today.
Savile, Jaconelli and Real Whitby: The Key Questions and one possible answer
If – as solicitor and Head of Legal and Democratic Services Mrs Lisa Dixon has alleged – Real Whitby’s articles are malicious, untrue and defamatory:
Could it be that some as yet unidentified individual Councillor(s) with influence within the Council is/are trying to silence Real Whitby to continue the cover up over Jaconelli and Savile?
Well, if this is the case, three other questions have to be asked:
Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire Police have had the opportunity to comment on this article. We have had no response from North Yorkshire Police. SBC responded that it would respond in three days by the close of play on Monday, provided we did not publish before then.
I consider this is excessive and unreasonable. After all, SBC were able to produce their press release falsely denying they had attempted to terminate Real Whitby at short notice, and in time for the Whitby Town Council meeting, when it suited them.
Our publishing timetable requires that we need to get another article out before the Whitby Goth Weekend coverage takes over. Having given SBC a day to produce a press response, I had no choice but to publish according to our timetable, although I would have liked to include a comment from SBC.
If any reader has information they wish to pass on to the Metropolitan Police investigation into the activities of Savile and his associates they should contact:
The Operation Yewtree Incident Room, on 0208 217 6446 in complete confidence, indicating they are doing so pursuant to the Real Whitby investigation.

Dear Ms Dixon,
Please can I have a response to my Freedom of Information Request concerning Peter Jaconelli.
I assert the reason my request is being unlawfully ignored is because Scarborough Borough Council does not want to admit that the allegations of Councillor Evans and others that Jaconelli was a paedophile and the police and council protected him because he was the mayor and a prominent Conservative are substantially correct.
I look forward to hearing from you or from someone in Scarborough Borough Council in due course.
