Face of this monster leers out at us

RE the revocation of Savile’s civic honour:

I welcome this news but ask why it was felt necessary to splash the face of such a degenerative monster in such a prominent place within the newspaper and devote two thirds of a page to this news.

Every time this particular news item is revisited, both in local and national press, this leering deviant smiles out; what does this say to the victims of his actions?

The news item states in paragraph two that “Savile’s name will now be permanently removed from the honours board and all Scarborough Council’s registers and accounts.” How wonderful it would be if Scarborough News were to take the lead and forthwith cease publishing any further images of this “creation from hell”.
