Edward Heath backed paedophile Jimmy Savile for a royal honour – two years after the previous Prime Minister warned the Queen against it, reports the Sunday People.
Savile was passed over for an MBE a month before the former Conservative leader moved into No10, the Sunday People can reveal.
But less than two years after Heath took office, the TV presenter – exposed after his death as a serial child-sex abuser – was awarded the HIGHER honour of an OBE.
