Victim found child abuse 'difficult to face'

A process that started with a number of abuse claims in a Jimmy Savile TV documentary has led to a flood of people coming forward with their stories.

Stacy, a victim of abuse for 11 years as a child, took her case to court a decade after it occurred.

"It's important as an individual you have the right to come forward in your own time," she told the Today programme.

"It was extremely difficult to face."
