How Jimmy Savile’s driver Ray Teret who raped girls as young as 12 was snared by sinister ‘wall of shame’ in secret lair | The Sun
AS serial paedophile Jimmy Savile picked out teenage girls from the adoring crowds at the clubs where he DJed, he was not always acting alone.
Throughout the 1960s, he was often flanked by Ray Teret – a vile protégé who idolised the sick predator and mirrored his crimes, raping girls as young as 12.
His part in Savile’s horrific abuse is brought to light in the new BBC drama The Reckoning, which shows the fawning Teret calling the older man “Father.”
In one shocking scene the evil pair are seen luring two 15-year-olds back to a flat before Teret pulls one of the girls into a bedroom, while Savile abuses her terrified pal.
In 2014, Teret – known as Ugly Ray – was convicted of seven counts of rape and 11 counts of indecent assault on girls aged between 12 and 15.
The court learned the Radio Caroline DJ- played by Happy Valley's Robert Emms in the drama – would ply girls with alcohol in his tiny flat, above a record shop in Sale, Manchester, and victims had a “secret knock” when they visited after school.
