Sir Jim’s coffin ‘encased in concrete’

SIR JIMMY Savile’s final resting place in Scarborough has been encased in concrete amid fears thieves may try to steal the broadcasting legend’s ‘bling’, it has been reported.

Sir Jimmy was laid to rest in the town last week, buried at a 45-degree angle overlooking the sea in Woodlands Cemetery.

The DJ was buried with his Royal Marines green beret and medal, rosary beads and Help For Heroes wristband.

Shortly after the burial service ended the grave was sealed in cement and then covered in earth.

A family friend told the Daily Mail: “The irony is – there isn’t (any gold). Even the Royal Marine medal he is wearing around his neck is cast out of bronze.

“But the family were worried about security, particularly as time drags on.”
