Charities have voiced their anger at an online retail giant for selling a “dead zombie Savile” costume.

The National Association for People Abused in Childhood has demanded that Amazon withdraw the controversial costume from sale.

The £14.99 Halloween costume features a trademark Jimmy Savile cigar, face paint, pink tinted glasses, a white wig and a blue shellsuit.

A description of the outfit states that it is “perfect for bad taste parties, Halloween and zombie Jimmy Savile fancy dress”.

The row came just days after Surrey Police transcripts of 2009 interviews with the disgraced late celebrity over child abuse allegations were released.

Last night Amazon listed the costume as “currently unavailable” and have stated that it is no longer on sale.
