Savile police probing 120 leads
Police are looking at 120 lines of inquiry and possibly as many as 25 victims relating to the Jimmy Savile sex abuse claims.
Scotland Yard has formally recorded eight criminal allegations against the star, including two of rape and six of indecent assault.
Commander Peter Spindler, head of Specialist Crime Investigations, said the allegations span four decades and information so far suggests abuse was on a "national scale".
He said there are currently 120 lines of inquiry, although some could be duplicates.
Mr Spindler told reporters: "Information is coming in as we speak probably.
"The reality is this really has captured the public's mind. We are getting calls from victims, from witnesses and third parties who believe they know something about it.
"We have formally recorded eight criminal allegations against Savile. Two of those are rape, six of indecent assault.
"These are primarily against girls in their mid-teens, so between 13 and 16 and it spans four decades of abuse."
He said the first dated back to about 1959 but most seemed to be in the 70s and 80s.
Scotland Yard has been in contact with ITV and the BBC to gather information, and they are contacting alleged victims they have been talking to to see if they will co-operate, he said.
