Savile Compensation Adverts In Newspapers
Advertisements informing people who claim they were sexually abused by TV presenter Jimmy Savile how to apply for compensation have been published in national newspapers.
Some 140 people have gone to the police to say they were abused by the former DJ.
The compensation scheme was approved after a High Court ruling in February.
Mr Justice Sales approved the scheme after an agreement was reached between the executor of Savile's estate, NatWest, alleged victims' lawyers, the NHS and the BBC.
He said it was a "sensible and pragmatic" attempt at resolving a "complex situation".
The adverts feature in The Times and Daily Mirror on Tuesday, along with some local newspapers.
They advise people who want to make a claim of sexual assault against Savile to do so by June 3.
The claim scheme will remain open for a year and payments will be capped at £60,000 each, according to the BBC.
Mr Justice Sales said the current value of Savile's estate is around £3.3m.
Savile died in October 2011 at the age of 84. He has been accused of being a serial child abuser and sex offender.
Lawyers have said they think the majority of alleged victims have already come forward to report abuse.
