Dave Lee Travis to be charged with indecent assault

Dave Lee Travis: "The nightmare is continuing"

Former Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis is to be charged with a further offence of indecent assault, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

Mr Travis already faces a retrial on charges of indecent and sexual assault after a jury was unable to agree verdicts on the two counts last month.

The CPS said it had authorised police to charge Mr Travis with the extra offence.

The 68-year-old said of the new charge: "The nightmare is continuing."

Last month, Mr Travis was cleared of 12 counts of indecent assault but the jury could not reach a decision on the two outstanding charges.

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.

Details of the fresh indecent assault charge have not been released.

Speaking outside London's Southwark Crown Court, where he was appearing for a legal hearing, Mr Travis said: "It's been a bit of a nightmare. And the only thing I want to say is this: The nightmare is continuing."
