Jimmy Savile:  The FOUR Rings?

Tim Hicks up-dates some major developments in the Savile investigation in Scarborough and Whitby.


Further to my recent “Corruption Busters” article on Jimmy Savile, we have received more information from Whitby and Scarborough residents, liaised with some national and local press organizations and accessed additional open sources.  We have also had access to the Operation Yewtree and Operation Ornament Reports into Savile.

This has allowed us to develop fresh information on Savile.  In particular, it appears he operated in paedophile-rings and we believe we have now identified three or four of them, and I am investigating a possible fifth.

Although Savile was a loner, never married and apparently did not form normal human relationships very easily – or indeed at all – he seems to have had close relationships with these five people:

1) His mother Mrs Agnes Savile, with whom he lived in her flat at the Esplanade, Scarborough, for much of his life.








2) Mr Alan Franey, who was a member of the Leeds General Infirmary Management Team when Savile worked there as a volunteer, and who became the General Manager at Broadmoor after Savile specifically requested Mr Franey to assist in his Broadmoor taskforce.








3) Mr Peter Jaconelli, who was a local Councillor and former Mayor of Scarbrough.








4) Mr Jimmy Corrigan, who was a Scarborough businessman and member of the same running club as Savile.








5) Mr Cyril Smith MP, who was first identified as a paedophile in 1979 by “Private Eye”.

The fresh information we have developed is as follows:

  • A local man has confirmed that Jaconelli did commit sexual offences against many boys at his Judo Club, which he ran from 1955 onwards, and at his ice-cream parlours.
  • Corrigan, Savile and Jaconelli frequented “Michaels’s” night-club in St Nicholas St, Scarborough, which was owned by Jimmy Corrigan and was subsequently sold and re-named “The Penthouse”It was a highly popular venue with a reputation far beyond Scarborough as can be seen from the list of famous groups it attracted, frequented by young people from far beyond Scarborough, giving rise to further concerns that they may have used it to procure victims.
  • Corrigan knew the owner of the property in Whitby containing “the chamber”, which was visited regularly by Savile and Jaconelli, although we have no evidence that Corrigan participated in any of the activities – whatever they may have been – that took place in “the chamber” or rituals room located there.

We have obtained further evidence of the close friendship between Savile and Mr Corrigan, which was not just limited to the running-club that Mr Franey, Mr Corrigan and Savile were members of: 

“Jimmy was a close friend of Jimmy Corrigan who owned the amusement arcade on the Foreshore and Jimmy was one of my customers. I spent a lot of time with him through work and socially and was aware that he and Jimmy Saville had lots in common. They both had a “Roller” and when they took delivery they immediately ordered another one because there was a waiting time of 3 or 4 years. Then they would sell the old one on at nearly the same price they paid for it.

In his 1974 autobiography “As it Happens”, Savile boasts that he and a millionaire friend had sex with six girls provided for him by a Council Chairman as a reward for attending. We suspect that the ‘millionaire friend’ was Jimmy Corrigan.  It appears from the description “girls”, and the fact that one of their fathers took the girl away, that they were under age.

Prior to moving to The Esplanade, Savile’s mother lived in Foley Street, Scarborough, very close to the May Lodge National Children’s Home. Savile visited his mother in Scarborough frequently and although we have no evidence to suggest there were any offences committed against children from the home, it remains a concern.  It also appears he had some contact with at least one child from the home as a result of his charity fundraising, although this appears to have been completely innocent and not a cause for concern.

In the last article, we pointed out that Savile travelled regularly between Leeds and Scarborough by train and frequented the Wimpy Bar that stood opposite Scarborough station; our concern being that he may have been committing sexual offences on the Leeds to Scarborough line.  The Operation Yewtree report confirmed that Savile committed at least one offence on a train, having assaulted a woman on a train from Leeds to London in 2009.  A spokesman for British Transport Police (BTP) said,“BTP received a historic allegation against Mr Savile in October 2012. This was in relation to an incident on board a train traveling between Doncaster and Leeds in 1974. This offence was investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Yewtree team.  BTP have not received any further allegations of Mr Savile committing offences on the railway network”.

Savile’s close relationship with Cyril Smith, referred to above, is very interesting and revealing. Both men shared a close friendship for forty years, no doubt reinforced by their common sexual preferences. Both were devoted to their mothers (Smith made his mother the Lady Mayoress of Rochdale and Savile referred to his mother as “The Duchess”), never married, escaped detection by the Police, evaded prosecution by the Crown Prosecution Service for the whole of their criminal paedophile careers, thereby escaping any consequences for their crimes during their lifetimes, although they were known to the Police and the CPS.

The decision by the CPS not to prosecute Savile and Smith at the time has been extensively criticised.

According to The Mirror, Cyril Smith was connected to another paedophile named Horgan who was also involved in the Satanic and sado-masochistic abuse of children. The article alleges “The shock revelation over the satanist and MP’s friendship raises questions over any role Smith and Jimmy Savile may have played in Horgan’s paedo ring. Horgan organised a series of satanic-themed orgies for like-minded paedos.  In one of them he raped little Michael and an even younger female child before watching on as others did the same. The monster, whose youngest victim was only two, also hung up his stepson and the girl on hooks.  In further horrendous episodes he stripped the children naked, blindfolded them and tied them to a cross next to a black magic altar so that his “disciples” could use them for sex.  Youngsters from two to 13 were drugged, tortured and sexually abused during the satanic ‘ceremonies’.”

The Rings

According to Operation Yewtree, there is “no clear evidence” he operated in paedophile rings, although “whether he was part of an informal network” is still being investigated.

However, according to the BBC, Savile “had different groups of friends in different places. They were his “‘teams’, he called them”.   It appears from the above that Savile operated in the following “Teams” (to use his term instead of the usual ring, sect, covern, network or gang):

  1. A paedophile “Team”/Ring in Scarborough, involving Mr Corrigan, Mr Jaconelli and possibly others.
  1. A Satanist “Team”/Ring in Whitby, involving Mr Jaconelli and possibly others, centered on the property in Whitby which had “the chamber’ in it.  Whilst we do not know what went on there and it could have been entirely innocent, when you have a cocktail of satanist and sadomasochistic paraphernalia, and Savile, an innocent explanation is unlikely.
  1. A Satanist “Team”/Ring in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, involving Savile and several others.
  1. There was also a fourth “Team”/Ring in Rochdale, led by Horgan, who was closely associated with Cyril Smith.  Smith was certainly Savile’s oldest friend and a very close confidant.

Although it must be stated we only have circumstantial evidence linking Savile to the paedophiles who are alleged to have committed offences in the Rochdale “Team/Ring”.  Given his obsessions and that he is alleged of have thought of committing sexual offences against children “every waking minute”, it is unlikely that this was coincidence or that Savile would have been unable to resist the temptation or pass up the opportunity of participating.

It certainly raises a concern that remains unresolved.  In particular, the description of the room used in Stoke Mandeville is strikingly similar to the description of  “the chamber” in Whitby, and the description of rape is similar to the description of rape that occurred in Rochdale, providing further corroboration.

Although North Yorkshire Police did miss an opportunity to arrest Robert Smith (one of Britain’s worst offending paedophiles) in 1987, merely issuing a caution instead of arresting him,  their recent record for investigating paedophiles in Scarborough and Whitby is actually quite impressive. They seem generally to have quite an effective and aggressively-led Protecting Vulnerable Persons Unit and it appears it dealt with a lot of paedophile activity, particularly in Scarborough.

Yet North Yorkshire Police did not disrupt the longest running and most successful paedophile-ring in British history that was operating openly for over fifty years in small seaside towns where they were well known locally for their activities.

Surrey Police have confirmed that it contacted North Yorkshire Police on the 20th of July 2007 asking if they had intelligence or information on Savile.  (Operation Ornament.  Report can be accessed here Reference: paragraph 7.15). They received a response confirming that North Yorkshire Police had no knowledge of him on the 21st or 22nd of July 2007; although according to The Express, Savile’s activities had been public knowledge locally and allegations of sexual abuse had been made against Savile to the Police in 2003 (during the successful investigation of Brian Rutter) and he had been a subject of interest in that inquiry.

If this is so, then the information and intelligence developed should have been recorded in the system in 2003, and then passed to Surrey Police in July 2007. It was not.

Savile was a nationally known and very influential figure, connected to the highest levels of British society, who had regular Friday morning meetings with nine police officers in his flat in Leeds.  It is not yet clear if officers from North Yorkshire police attended them, although a spokesman for British Transport Police (BTP) said “We are unaware of any BTP officers attending any private meetings with Mr Savile.”

Savile was also adept at manipulating the Police or intimidating them if necessary, and has been alleged to have routinely bribed Police Officers.  One serving Police officer acted as his driver and bodyguard, another officer “Inspector 5” who was the West Yorkshire Police Force Incident Manager based in their control room, acted as Savile’s PA when Surrey Police asked to interview Savile undr caution as part of a criminal investigation (Paragraph 7.25 of the Operation Ornament report above) and made arrangements for the interview to take place at Stoke Mandeville Hospital the next day, instead of a police station. During this interview set up by “Inspector 5”, Savile threatened Police Officers and was able to manage and dominate the interview easily, because it took place in Hospital premises, not a Police Station, as would be the normal practice.

Could this ability to influence an intimidate Police officers explain why the Surrey Police enquiry in 2007 elicited no mention of the 2003 Police interest in Savile, which should have existed in North Yorkshire Police computer records?

Although I am open to correction, it appears to me that either The Express report is wrong; the information gathered in 2003 was not entered into the computer; it was subsequently removed, or it existed and this information was not disclosed to Surrey Police. In this context, I am aware from another investigation of allegations of corruption against at least one Officer in the North Yorkshire Police Force Intelligence Bureau – which handles requests for information from outside forces – although this took place three and a half years later in 2010.

We will probably never know the explanation for this inconsistency, because North Yorkshire Police Chief Constable Tim Madgwick is refusing to comment or provide any explanation.  Contrrast this with the open, prompt and helpful response we received from the British Transport Police.

In summary, the worst serial offender in British history operated openly in Scarborough and Whitby in the longest running paedophile-ring in the history of policing in the UK despite being known to the police.

That is bad enough.

However, the final piece in this chain of events is that it was ex (Acting) Chief Inspector Tom Fox, who commanded policing in Scarborough for some time during Savile’s period of offending, who  as Councillor Tom Fox recommended that he be made a Freeman of the Borough in 2005.

To be fair, Councillor Fox has now moved that the honour is withdrawn. However, Councillor Fox makes no mention in his motion of any regret over his original recommendation.

At least his motion to withdraw the Honorary Freeman status from Savile has been published nationally, giving him excellent personal publicity.


If any reader has information they wish to pass on to the Metropolitan Police investigation into the activities of Savile and his associates in Scarborough and Whitby, they should contact:

The Operation Yewtree Incident Room, on 0208 217 6446

indicating they are doing so pursuant to the Real Whitby investigation.

    You can’t help but wonder how this would be playing out if Jimmy Savile was still around. This is going to go on for a long time and there is every reason to believe that others are out there that might yet come forward and some that never will.

    To imagine that any police force would feel it necessary to avoid getting actively involved in an investigation in to paedophilia is astonishing.

    Unfortunately authorities and government departments do not answer questions that will uncover the truth and without the possibility of putting pressure on those involved a long road is in front of both those that want the truth and also these that do not.

    Indeed Sally. I Savile had not died then the Authorities would still be covering up and certain people would still be having fun. So perhaps this is the way ab enquiry should go because the trail is HOT.

    So lets take up where Savile left off let’s assume that the reluctance shown by the police comes from their on going abuse cover ups.

    All this information is IN THE PUBLIC interest and the investigation currently under-way should be made public once it is finalised. The NYP, NOT giving information NOT relating to any investigation should be seen as placing the public at large in jeopardy.
    Those that have not come forward with information, who have been involved in these crimes, should be prosecuted to the maximum allowed by PUBLIC opinion. Those that have come forward should be given lenient sentences (to be fair) those who come forward now should be treated in the same way, however if those who are named and have not come forward GOD HELP THEM, they will not survive in prison.
    I URGE EVERYONE to allow those who wish to come forward, regardless of the heinous crimes, allow them to vindicate the unforgivable, in the name of putting an end to what will otherwise continue unabated.
    I ask, which is worse, letting off a few with lenient sentences or having this go on for decades to come and have other children treated in a way that is horrendous and possibly fatal.

    Let it be that 6 months be the time scale for those wishing to come forward, come forward and after that the gates of HELL will be waiting for them.
    After July those caught or coming forward WILL be prosecuted to the fullest, at the PUBLIC’S pleasure.

    We needn’t agree but it seems it is all we have. Please make it known that this could be the case and let these people come forward, it is a small price to pay but it may save a child’s life.

    I do say it with a heavy heart but this just might put an end to it on this scale.

    ”In his 1974 autobiography “As it Happens”, Savile boasts that he and a millionaire friend had sex with six girls provided for him by a Council Chairman as a reward for attending.” No he doesn’t actually. I suggest you re-read it and amend accordingly. There was also nothing secret about the request for six girls to act as ‘bodyguards’ and stay in the tent. The Council actually advertised it.

    By the way, the Express story about the ‘satanic ring’ at Stoke Mandeville is so clearly a complete crock that I marvel a sentient human being can give it credence.
    She recognised him, despite his mask, because he insisted on smoking a cigar and the onlooking satanists cheered ‘you sure fixed it for her Jim’. Is there anything that would not be believed about Savile in the current climate? It will end up doing no good for the children being abused now, that’s for sure. Children need to be believed and obvious fantasies recounted as fact don’t help them!!

      Your credence is stretched because you have misunderstood so-called satanism. It’s not about supernatural mumbojumbo. It’s about controlling the impressionable and compromising fools. That’s Savile through and through. Fantasies that are obvious to you and me are enthralling to the young and star struck.

    I have read some of your Real Whitby articles in the past which I have found very interesting.

    However I suggest on this issue you research your ‘facts’ a little better and read your own ‘evidence’. Your link to SEN clearly shows that Michael Corrigan opened ‘Michael’s’ (to later become the Penthouse). Not Jimmy Corrigan.

    Having carried out my own research to check my facts before I posted I have found there were/are 4 Jimmy Corrigans, 2 Alberts, Michael and a Patrick all with business (and homes) in Scarborough historically who were friends of Savile

    One of the Scarborough Jimmy Corrigans went on to open Batley Variety Club, bingos and Theme Parks in Spain who was a millionaire and Rolls Royce owning friend of Savile.

    Which Corrigan is it you refer too? (Or was it all of them!)

    Not knowing which Jimmy Corrigan is like not knowing which Pope. Corrigan was bigger in Scarborough than Savile ever was. I suggest on this issue you research your ‘facts’ a little better, Joe.

  15. Balanced Debate January 29, 2013 at 10:38 pm - Reply


    This article, although I’m sure is well intended, has selective information loosely based on some facts but mainly rumour.

    Firstly the statement

    “Savile’s activities had been public knowledge locally and allegations of sexual abuse had been made against Savile to the Police in 2003 (during the successful investigation of ***** ******) and he had been a subject of interest in that inquiry.”

    This was not a “successful investigation” as is stated. The gentleman who is named above was acquitted of any wrong doing by The Court of Appeal. His ‘victim’ was shown to be lying. The court acknowledged that he had never had any connection with her. It turned out that the ‘victim’ used a tale of historic abuse to try and get off with a separate unconnected crime that she had committed. The Court Of Appeal accepted this and quashed this mans conviction fully. This is a on public record. It is fact.

    Secondly, the reference to “Foley Street” instead of the correct name Filey Road (which is one of the main roads in Scarborough) shows a lack of basic local knowledge and it would seem a lack of Scarborough contacts who were around during the era of the investigation.

    There are a growing number of inaccuracies and inconsistencies being highlighted here by myself and previous contributors, Especially when one considers the failing, elderly, INNOCENT chap you name above is STILL ALIVE with a family and grandchildren.

    Having read through earlier posts on Savile on this site, I have not read any demonstrable facts of a ring operating in our area. You are correct that there may have been individuals acting unilaterally historically but a ring?

    There are 100’s of men that have been photographed with Savile in his lifetime, many of them big names, who are still with us, who live locally, who must surely be ‘persons of interest’ to Real Whitby and still ‘at large’. Please name them.

    There isnt a single ‘victim’ who has come forward claiming they were passed around his satanic ring (the longest running in British history, operating for some 50 years!)

    Over 500 people have made formal statements under oath about Savile (and others) to Operation Yewtree and the NSPCC officers. If the police had any evidence of a ring the police would have said “we have found evidence of a ring operating in North Yorkshire”.

    If Savile was part of a ring do you think his ‘partners in crime’ would be willing to pose publicly with him or even appearing on television along side him? I don’t think so! It is more likely that Savile actually abused alone. I suspect this is why he kept his friends and associates segregated and totally separate from one another. Or even look for the men he wasn’t associated publicly with.

    I find it hard to believe that the Met, NYPD, SBC, NYCC and other public bodies have all got together along with many retired members to keep this a big secret. This seems at odds when Real Whitby actually acknowledges and endorses the fact that NYPD has an exemplary record in child protection and detection of crimes of this kind.

    Relying on Google searches and rumours posted by people with pseudonyms is unsafe to say the least and has no validity whatsoever and certainly not admissible as evidence in anyone’s investigations.

    I am sure a number of Real Whitys supporters will jump up and slap my comments down with great vigour but there is a significant silent majority who just read this reporting with disbelief.

    Unfortunately the truth is that potentially innocent people are being implicated, many with families, who have no form of recourse to what is a damaging slur on their loved ones.

    Has thought been given to the effects these stories may be doing exactly what you accuse others of…….damaging more innocent lives!

    Please let’s have a balanced, evidenced based debate.

      @ ‘Balanced Debate’: Tim Hicks has asked me to respond to you on his behalf.


      Dear “Balanced Debate”,

      Thank you for your contribution. You are right that Mr Rutter was acquitted at appeal, it was Mr John Thomas White that was convicted and this is made absolutely clear in the Express article contained within my piece.

      However, you are right the article should have said the successful prosecution of John Thomas White. The names were juxtapositioned in error as a result of oversight on my part. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

      I am glad you have published a correction and the full facts, which I completely endorse.

    I am grateful that my post was accepted after a second attempt. I accept that my first attempt was rejected due to my comments having a number of points questioning the veracity of the authors credentials which obviously cut quite close to the bone. I thank you for allowing the second edited and amended submission nonetheless.

    I hope that the acquitted gentleman named interprets your response as a full retraction and apology.

    I would like to bring a further point to your attention that you may or may not consider as evidence . I understand the man you name in your reply to me was also convicted from evidence given from the same ‘witness’ that was used to convicte the innocent man you named earlier.

    Now here is the interesting bit. I am told today that J*** W**** was in the process of launching an appeal. He claimed that he too was wrongly accused under the same circumstances as ***** ******. Unfortunately he passed away before the appeal was listed.

    I am a firm advocate for the fundamental principles of British Law. Innocent until proven guilty and due process.

    I know, I know, yes there are exceptions to every rule and I suspect if Savile was alive now the only view he would have was of his new tattooed room mate and he would be studying an X-box instruction manual.

    He took everyone in from the very top to the very bottom of society. Unfortunately most of his friends (dead and alive) who thought they were his friend are now potential targets of some kind of perverse ‘journalistic genocide’ and whispers form what must seem like the whole world. I heard that one of Saviles friends said to an acquaintance of mine that they felt like displaying a white sheet on their front door (bygone plague infestation sign (for the young ones)).

    This must be extremely disturbing to many of them and their families. I think the point is well made as a reply under your next post, regarding the very tragic, avoidable event that caused Jacintha Saldanha to take here own life. The pen (keyboard or phone call) is truly mightier than the sword.

    You are very correct and I applaud you in directing and encouraging people with information to the relevant operations crime desks but the speculative running commentary does not help the professionals investigations. It just whips up a frenzy, muddies the waters and makes the authorities task that much more difficult. If you yourself have suspicions of perpetrators of crime I urge you to report it directly to the police. If charges are ultimately brought there obviously is a case to answer and then their names and charge(s) will then be in the public realm and you can then be proud.

    I have made my points as clearly as I possibly can. I just hope that you at least consider them before you dismiss them.

    I will sign off with my opening paragraph from my first post once more “this article, although well intended, has selective information loosely based on some facts but mainly rumour.”

    God bless

    I’m sorry I have to take issue with the comment “He took everyone in from the very top to the very bottom of society.” The idea that Savile with his links to government and royalty would not have been vetted is implausible.

    Cyril Smith has been linked to the Elm Guest House case now being investigated for a THIRD time by Operation Fernbridge. This case is potentially huge, high profile figures from Thatcher’s cabinet may be implicated and there are links to the Netherands.

    Pete Adams and his Penthouse club linked with Savile, Corrigan, Jaconelli and satanism? Where did you get such utter nonsense from?
    The very idea of Corrigan or Jaconelli frequenting the Penthouse would raise a belly laugh from anyone who actually knew the place, or indeed knew Pete. While I could imagine Savile frequenting the Penthouse I can inform you with certainty that he did not.
    The only grain of truth I could find in your accusations of Pete is that he did have a room in his Whitby home vaguely similar to the one you describe as “the chamber”. He actually called it the play-room and far from it being a secret place of evil it was open knowledge to all and sundry. Some people might have a water-bed, Pete simply had a lot more money and flaire than most people and enjoyed it to the full. The three people you attempt to link him with were not even on his social radar.
    What snippet of gossip has led you to libel such a nice guy in such a blatant way is beyond me. I just hope he sees your “researched” piece and takes the appropriate action.
    I have in the past used your site in the hope of gaining a little more “truth” regarding local politics and the antics of those involved. I am no longer sure that I could believe a word I read on here.

        Just thought you may like to know that at least someone knew the late Pete Adams. Me. Stories about him were prevalent in the late 60s and early 70s when I was a ‘young man about town. If he were alive now he would be about 90 so I doubt if he will see RW’s efforts or take any action. I’m afraid I can no longer find the old girl friend who could no doubt tell you some stories, as she used to nearly 50 years ago. So I’m afraid, DKP, that in this instance at least you are wrong. Were you there at the time? I doubt it because otherwise you wouldn’t need to Google Mr Adams. You would know the stories. Which, as I was there at the time, I have no reason to doubt. Surprised nobody’s mentioned Dave Cook except that he was rampantly gay so didn’t fit in with the ‘main’ crowd. One (funny) story about him was that he lost a lot of his credibility as a local agent when he refused to book a band for the Penthouse because they were ‘uncouth and scruffy’. He went around town bragging about it. The band was a little group, before fame, called the Beatles.

    Savile owned flats above a nightclub in Bournemouth during the 70’s. He was often there in the summer with his mate Alan Freeman. I used to see them going up to the flats with very young girls on their arms, usually Saturday nights. The bouncers at the nightclub used to make sniggering comments about them being kiddie fiddlers. I remember the two of them used to ‘guest DJ’ in the local clubs. I also think some girls came from a local kids home in Turbury park/West Howe but I could be wrong.
