The Leeds conference centre which takes its name after the late disgraced Jimmy Savile has today said it plans to rebrand.

Savile’s, owned by Royal Armouries International, will be renamed following reports that the late DJ and television presenter sexually abused up to 30 young girls over four decades.

The conference centre will be renamed ‘out of respect for public opinion’ according to its owners, having previously pushed itself closely to the reputation of Savile, housing many pictures and pieces memorabilia of him.

The charity which also operates under Jimmy Savile’s name, The Jimmy Savile Stoke Mandeville Hospital Trust, has said that it will meet next week to discuss whether to rebrand also.

Last night the headstone at his grave was also removed for fear of vandalism.
