Dave Lee Travis has been charged with two further counts of indecent assault, along with the eleven he already faces. He also faces one pre-existing charge of sexual assault.

As previously reported, former Radio 1 DJ Travis received his original charges in August, after being arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, the police investigation launched in the wake of revelations about child abuse committed by Jimmy Savile last year. The charges relate to assaults on ten women between the ages of fifteen and 29, the earliest from 1977 and the most recent allegedly taking place in 2007, and are all unconnected to Savile.

The presenter has previously publicly denied all claims against him and is expected to plead not guilty in court. His trial, where he will stand under his real name of David Griffin, is currently set to begin on 14 Mar next year. He is next due to appear in court for a bail hearing on 3 Oct.
