Dave Lee Travis Charged With New Sex Offences
Broadcaster Dave Lee Travis has been charged with two further offences of indecent assault.
The allegations relate to a woman aged over 16 between January 1, 1992 and December 31, 1993, Scotland Yard said.
They are in addition to 11 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault the 68-year-old has already been charged with.
Travis, of Mentmore, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, has already appeared in court to face those 12 counts.
During that hearing he indicated he would be pleading not guilty to the charges.
He was released on bail on condition that he lives at his Bedfordshire home and does not contact the alleged victims.
The case was adjourned for a plea hearing on October 21. A trial date was also fixed for March 4 next year with a view to it lasting for up to five weeks.
Travis is due to appear on bail at Westminster Magistrates' Court in relation to the new charges on October 3.
He was charged when he attended a police station by prior appointment, the Metropolitan Police said.
The ex-Radio 1 DJ was first charged on August 15 as part of Operation Yewtree, the police investigation prompted by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal.
However, the accusations against Travis have no connection to the disgraced television presenter.
