A spokesman for Derbyshire police said: "In October 2012, we received a call from a woman who reported that she was sexually assaulted by Jimmy Savile in 1966. She was 16 at the time and the incident took place at a public event in Alfreton.
"We referred the report to the Metropolitan Police."
A report released by Scotland Yard says the Metropolitan police is investigating 214 criminal offences against Savile. They spread across 28 police forces in the UK.
Seven are alleged to have happened in Notts.
Among these claims is a report that the late TV and radio presenter abused a patient in 1971 at the old Saxondale Mental Hospital, near Bingham.
The hospital closed in 1988.
According to the report, Savile, who died in October 2011, abused his victims at 13 other medical sites, including hospitals, other mental health units and even a hospice.
