Vale DJ Dave Lee Travis has appeared in court today charged with 12 sexual offences spanning three decades.

The 68 year old, real name David Patrick Griffin, of Mentmore, is charged with 11 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault.

The allegations date from 1977 to 2007 and relate to nine female complainants aged between 15 and 29 at the time.

After appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Mr Travis was bailed to appear at Southwark Crown Court on September 6.

He denies wrongdoing and his solicitor Martin Bale indicated he would be pleading not guilty.

The former Radio 1 DJ, known as the Hairy Cornflake, was arrested in November as part of the investigation into sexual abuse following the Jimmy Savile scandal.
