DIG HIM UP AND HANG HIM!

Brits take to the in­ter­net in anger over Sir Jimmy Sav­ile sex claims

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By RACHEL SPENCER

FU­RI­OUS Brits have taken to the in­ter­net to hit out at the late Sir Jimmy Sav­ile as claims he abused young­sters gather pace.

An­gry for­mer fans who idolised the Jim’ll Fix It star – who died last year aged 84 – turned on him with a vengeance.

They were left stunned and ap­palled as more vic­tims came for­ward say­ing Sav­ile had mo­lested them as chil­dren, in­clud­ing brave Bebe Roberts, now 62, who says she was just 15 when he sneaked into her dor­mi­tory at her girls’ board­ing school and as­saulted her.

And the on­line world showed its ha­tred of the for­mer DJ and Top of the Pops host.

On the Daily Mail On­line ‘Bobby Gillespie’ said: “Dig him up and hang him!”

And on Face­book ‘ Chris Brindle’ wrote: “Shall we dig his body out of the ground and burn it on Bon­fire Night.”

Peo­ple also took over the Face­book group RIP Jimmy Sav­ile, you en­ter­tained so many of us, set up for peo­ple to share fond mem­o­ries of their time on his lap, to at­tack him.

‘An­drew Walker’ raged: “Dig him up and re­move him NOW! Scar­bor­ough doesn’t need dead nonces.”

‘Aarone’, from Leeds, said: “He was like one of your un­cles that when you were a kid you just knew you had to steer clear of him. Ur­rrgh creepy old peado scum”

‘Paul Austin’ wrote: “Sick bas­tard, rot in hell u c**t!!”

And ‘Mr Pome’ said: “Lets hope the mag­gots get to you now Sir Jimmy.”

Some, how­ever, stuck up for the star, ac­cused al­leged vic­tims of ‘mak­ing up’ the claims and called the press ‘scum’ for print­ing them.

CEME­TERY bosses last night beefed up se­cu­rity at Sir Jimmy’s grave amid fears it will be the tar­get of at­tacks.

The £4,000, 6ft-wide, 4ft-high stone, at Wood­lands Ceme­tery in Scar­bor­ough, North Yorks, fea­tures pic­tures of the DJ along­side the phrase “It was good while it lasted”.
