Just when you though Halloween costumes couldn't get much worse than crudely depicting those with mental illness as axe-wielding maniacs, this appears online.

Yup, somebody, somewhere thought it would be just fine to sell a zombie Jimmy Savile outfit.

Complete with medal and cigar the costume was available for a time on Amazon for £14.99 - but was unsurprisingly withdrawn after a flood of complaints.



Peter Saunders, at National Association for People Abused in Childhood told the Sunday Express: "It is tasteless, senseless, and extremely insensitive.

"Nobody wants to remember Savile's horrible face, particularly his many victims."

It comes under a fortnight after police revealed the investigation into sex offence committed by Savile was being widened to 13 more hospitals.

Additionally, in a newly released and sickening transcript of an interview conducted by police, Savile boasted about "brushing off girls like midges".
