Tim Westwood interviews by police for a fourth time over sexual misconduct allegations

Former BBC Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood has been interviewed under caution for a fourth time by London's Metropolitan Police.

Officers confirmed in a statement yesterday that they had "interviewed a 66-year-old man under caution" in relation to incidents that allegedly occurred between 1982 and 2016.

The police force has been investigating formal allegations that were made against the DJ in the wake of a media exposé last year in which a number of women accused Westwood of sexual misconduct.

Some of the women who spoke to journalists as part of that exposé said that, after they agreed to meet with the DJ to discuss their careers in music, he had pressured them into sex. Others claimed that he had groped them as they posed for photographs at events.

Many of the alleged incidents took place between 1994 and 2013 when Westwood worked for the BBC. That prompted the broadcaster to launch an independent review into the alleged incidents, what BBC management did or did not know about the allegations at the time, and how they dealt with them.

Westwood has previously denied all the allegations made against him and has never been arrested for any crime. However, he has now been interviewed under caution four times this year.

When asked about the allegations in a social media video last week, he said: "It's all false allegations. It's all false allegations. I've never done that, period, they're all false allegations. I will prove that as soon as I get my opportunity and trust me, I am ready".
