Sav­ile paedo pen­t­house to be torn down

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE new own­ers of Jimmy Sav­ile’s pen­t­house plan to level the flat and re­move all trace of the dis­graced TV star.

CXI 92 Ltd bought the fifth-floor pad in a lux­ury apart­ment block in the plush Round­hay area of Leeds, West Yorks, for a snip.

It was ex­pected to reach £325,000 on the mar­ket, but when the rev­e­la­tions into Sav­ile’s sor­did per­sonal life came to light the price tum­bled to £250,000.

A spokesman for the firm said: “We are go­ing to de­mol­ish and com­pletely re­build the prop­erty be­fore sell­ing it or pos­si­bly us­ing it as a ren­tal prop­erty.

“We are go­ing to de­mol­ish it in the next six months to two years.”

He added the the work would not af­fect any of the other apart­ments in the Lake View Court block.

Sav­ile bought the flat in the 1970s and died there in 2011, aged 84.

It went up for sale last Septem­ber, shortly be­fore the house­hold name was un­masked as a se­rial nonce.
