CPS: 'Denning's child sexual abuse was truly appalling'

Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has been jailed for 13 years for a catalogue of assaults on boys.

Southwark Crown Court heard that the 73-year-old used the allure of the record industry and his fame to groom his young victims, some who were as young as nine.

In a statement outside the court the CPS Chief Prosecutor for London, Baljit Ubhey, described his crimes as "truly appalling".
