George Entwistle WAS warned about 'real truth' of Jimmy Savile TWO YEARS ago - when presenter was still alive

Failed BBC director general George Entwistle was warned of ‘the real truth’ about child-abuser Jimmy Savile as early as May 2010 - but failed to ask any questions about it, it has been revealed.

The Pollard review today published the revelations as part of a report into why Newsnight dropped an investigation into decades of sexual abuse carried out by the DJ.

The programme was shelved in December 2011 just before the BBC ran several tributes to the paedophile DJ over Christmas.
