DJ Dave Lee Travis trial: Jury given majority direction

Dave Lee Travis arriving at Southwark Crown Court on February 13 Mr Travis denies all of the charges against him

Jurors in the trial of former BBC DJ Dave Lee Travis have been told they can return majority verdicts.

Judge Anthony Leonard made the direction on the fourth day of deliberations in the trial at Southwark Crown Court.

Mr Travis, 68, of Mentmore, Buckinghamshire, denies 13 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault.

The alleged incidents, dating back to 1976, involve 11 women.

Giving evidence earlier in the trial, which has lasted four weeks, Mr Travis told the jury of eight women and four men the claims against him were "nonsensical".

He said that he was "cuddly", not "predatory".

Mr Travis is being tried under his real name, David Patrick Griffin.
