Former Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis has pleaded not guilty to a single charge of indecent assault against a woman, aged over 16, in January 1995.

Mr Travis, 68, entered the plea at Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London.

It comes after he was cleared of 12 counts of indecent assault in February.

He was told to appear for a further hearing at Southwark Crown Court on 8 May.

The Crown Prosecution Service said last month it had authorised police to charge him with the alleged offence.

He faces a retrial on two outstanding charges.

Dressed in a blazer, white shirt and black trousers, Mr Travis, who appeared under his real name David Griffin, was asked to enter his plea and answered: "Not guilty."
