Dave Lee Travis: 'Year and a half of hell'

Former BBC DJ Dave Lee Travis has been found not guilty of 12 counts of indecent assault.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court failed to reach a decision on a further indecent assault count and one of sexual assault.

Mr Travis, 68, of Mentmore, Buckinghamshire, denied all charges against him during the four-week trial.

The alleged incidents dated from 1976 to 2008 and involved 11 women.

At a news briefing outside the court he told journalists that he had been through "a year and a half of hell" while the proceedings were taking place.

"I'm not over the moon about any of this today. I don't feel like there's a victory in any way, shape or form," he said.
