Veteran DJ Dave Lee Travis has been found not guilty of 12 indecent assault charges.

But the jury at London's Southwark Crown Court failed to reach verdicts on two other charges and were discharged.


Travis, 68, showed no reaction as the verdicts were read out, looking straight ahead.


The jury of eight women and four men had been deliberating for around 20 hours after a trial at which the former Top Of The Pops presenter was accused of indecently assaulting 10 women and sexually assaulting another in alleged incidents dating back to 1976 when he was at the height of his fame.


There will be a further hearing at the same court on February 24 to decide if there should be a retrial of the two outstanding charges.
