Alleged victims of Jimmy Savile, who have died in 2011, are calling for a single criminal inquiry as to how the ex-BBC DJ managed to evade justice for so long.
Currently, several different organisations are carrying individual investigations that are linked to the ex-presenter.
There are about 50 alleged victims who have said that they fear key questions will not be answered in regard to how Savile operated.
Solicitor Alan Collins, who is representing 60 of Savile's victims in compensation claims, said: "It should be one inquiry, chaired by a high court judge. I fear if this does not happen, an opportunity will have been lost, not only for the victims but for the country as a whole.
"The risk (of not having one inquiry) is justice may be incomplete."
One of the victims who claims that he was abused by Savile when he was just 15 said: "There are too many individual inquiries, far too many."
"Surely it would be best... if there was just one inquiry led by someone competent and, when all the evidence was gathered from up and down the country, they collated it and then we might know exactly why Jimmy Savile got away with serious sexual abuse for nearly 50 years."
