      I know of another TV presenter, not deceased, who is well known by BBC staff to be a serial harasser of women, but nothing was ever done about it.

        I must say I’m surprised – this is NOT criticism – that Vanessa Feltz said she felt unable to do anything about Rolf Harris groping her clandestinely on live TV. A live scream and slap would have brought Harris the instance disgrace that he deserved.

    Above meant he is now deceased, he was very much alive in 1993, sadly!
