Women who say they were sexually abused by paedophile DJ Jimmy Savile will receive compensation but less than they had hoped after a judge ordered that lawyers must be paid first.
The Court of Appeal today sanctioned a compensation scheme set up for victims of the television star.
However, three appeal judges said many legal bills would have to be paid out of Savile’s estate – which is thought to be worth around £3 million.
Who didn’t think that the lawyers were going to get paid first?
And who is willing to bet that there will be anything left at all after the lawyers have had their share?
