The former police detective who exposed Jimmy Savile as a prolific paedophile has claimed that a similarly “very significant” person is waiting to be exposed for similar crimes.

Mark Williams-Thomas shocked the world when he exposed the once-loved, former television icon Jimmy Savile for his paedophilic behaviour with an award-winning film in October, 2012.

Five women told of their sexual abuse at his hands, and many more came forward a year after he died.

Operation Yewtree was launched by Met Police, which saw 19 other people arrested, with seven of them sent to prison.

But now the retired detective and child protection expert has claimed that he has a similar bombshell about another high profile person.

Speaking to the I, he said: “There are still people out there who are untouchable.

'There is one very significant person who I've done everything to try and get prosecuted because he is clearly a child sex offender.'

'To date the CPS won't prosecute. The police and I have tried really hard to get there. He will die in due course and then the floodgates will open in the same way they did with Savile. That's not right. But justice takes many different forms.”

“The truth is no broadcaster would have done a programme about Savile when he was alive – we live in a society where there are some people you can't take on and that's really sad.”

Williams-Thomas did not give any details away about who this "significant person" was.

However, he hinted that one way in which these types of cases could be brought to the forefront would be if victims gave up their right to anonymity.

He explained: “I've seen the value of lifting anonymity for victims to come forward. It's one of the reasons the CPS didn't have evidence to prosecute Savile when he was alive.

“The media plays a vital role in getting victims to come forward by publicising names, but they have to consider the impact on the accused because there is no more abhorrent crime than child sex abuse.”

The Daily Star has contacted the CPS for a comment.
