LONDON - The executors of the estate of the late Jimmy Savile have stopped distribution of assets because of potential claims from people who say they were sexually abused by the British television star.

Savile's estate is reportedly worth 4.3 million pounds ($6.9 million).

National Westminster Bank confirmed Thursday that the estate had been frozen.

Police say they have identified about 300 potential victims of Savile, who died last year.
