Former Patient At Stoke Mandeville Tells BBC She Was Abused By Jimmy Savile

October 11, 2012

A former patient at the hospital has told the BBC she was abused by Savile in 1971 when she was 13.

Caroline Moore, 53, from Clarkston near Glasgow, was in a wheelchair being treated for spinal injuries at the time.

She said: “I was outside a ward or a gym and he came out and just rammed his tongue down my throat… I was 13 and didn’t know anything about that kind of thing.

“I told my family at the time but they didn’t take it seriously because he was so high-profile. I tried to raise it a few years ago when a documentary was being made but they wouldn’t entertain me either.”

Ms Moore said she wished Savile was alive to face the allegations made against him.

“I feel cheated. After 40 years he still upsets me,” she added.
