Labour has made fresh calls to hold an independent investigation into the Jimmy Savile sex abuse allegations.
Labour leader Ed Miliband tolds ITV’s The Agenda internal investigations by organisations were not enough.
He said: “In order to do right by the victims, I don’t think the BBC can lead their own inquiry.
“We need a broad look at all the public institutions involved - the BBC, parts of the NHS and Broadmoor. This has got to be independent.”
Mr Miliband said he believed the sheer wealth of accusations indicated it is clear this is ‘not some isolated set of incidents’.
The Labour leader added the abuse would scar victims for life.
Conservative Reading East MP Rob Wilson told the Herald it was important Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where some of the abuse took place, held an internal investigation.
He said: “For the sake of the hospital’s reputation I urge the Bucks Healthcare NHS Trust that not to drag its feet and act quickly.”
Mr Wilson wrote to trust boss Anne Eden demanding an investigation. He has received a response from Ms Eden and will publish the letters later today.
Scotland Yard is currently leading a national investigation into more than 350 lines of enquiry. It is believed the Jim’ll Fix It star may have sexually abused more than 60 women since 1959, with six allegations relating to Stoke Mandeville Hospital already made.
