Dave Lee Travis Trial: Jury Selection Starts
Jury selection has started a day before former TV and radio star Dave Lee Travis is due to stand trial over more than a dozen assault allegations.
The 68-year-old broadcaster faces 13 charges of indecent assault and one of sexual assault.
The offences, which he denies, allegedly occurred between 1976 and 2008.
Eleven women have made accusations against him, the youngest was 15 years old at the time of the alleged offence.
Appearing under his real name of David Griffin, the DJ sat in the dock at Southwark Crown Court as jurors were selected.
Potential jury members were excused from sitting on the case if they had connections to the BBC, Classic Gold FM, Chiltern Radio or the Metropolitan Police's Operation Yewtree.
The DJ has consistently denied any wrongdoing since he was first arrested at his former home near Leighton Buzzard in November 2012.
Operation Yewtree was set up after the Jimmy Savile scandal but the current case is not connected with Savile.
During a long career in radio and television Dave Lee Travis, known as DLT, was the host of the BBC Radio One breakfast show between 1978 and 1980.
He famously resigned from the station while on air in 1993.
Jurors were told that his trial is due to start on Tuesday and could last for six weeks.
