A former detective who exposed Jimmy Savile as a prolific paedophile is now working to bring down another VIP.

Mr Williams-Thomas’ documentary led to hundreds more victims of Savile coming forward.
Their accounts of decades-long abuse prompted the Metropolitan Police to set up Operation Yewtree.
Scotland Yard assessed 400 lines of inquiry, identifying more than 200 potential victims of the prolific paedophile.
