Former BBC DJ Dave Lee Travis has been found guilty of one count of indecent assault but cleared of a second.

Prosecutors claimed the ex-Top Of The Pops presenter was an ‘opportunist’ who acted as if he had the ‘perfect right’ to grope young women.

But, giving his own evidence, the veteran DJ denied the claims, telling jurors the women had been lying.

He also called on a host of other defence witnesses, which heard him described as the ‘perfect gentleman’ rather than a sexual predator.

He has been accused of two counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault, with the allegations dating back to the 1990s when he was starring in panto, while the most recent was said to have happened during an interview with a journalist at his home in 2008.
