Former BBC radio DJ Dave Lee Travis, who lives in Buckland, has been charged with a further count of indecent assault.

The 68 year old is alleged to have assaulted a woman in January 1995.

The Crown Prosecution Service said they had authorised police to charge him with the alleged offence last month.

The new charge comes after Travis was cleared of 12 counts of indecent assault in February.

He faces a retrial on two outstanding charges.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court had been unable to reach verdicts on the charges of indecent and sexual assault.

They relate to an allegation of indecent assault against a woman in the early 1990s along with an alleged sexual assault on a journalist in 2008.

Travis, who moved to a bungalow in the village near Aston Clinton earlier this year, was forced to sell the mansion in Mentmore where he lived for over a decade in order to pay his legal costs.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on April 24.
