Former glam rock singer Gary Glitter is facing life behind bars after being found guilty of a string of historic sexual abuse offences against three young girls.

The 70-year-old, real name Paul Gadd, was convicted by a jury of five men and seven women at Southwark Crown Court in London

He was found guilty of one count of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault, and one count of sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13.

Glitter raised his eyebrows and looked shocked in the dock as the verdicts were read. He blew kisses to a public gallery full of reporters as he was remanded in custody and led down to the cells.

Judge Alistair McCreath told him: "In light of verdicts, I am remanding him in custody."

He will be sentenced on February 27 at 9.30am.

Glitter was cleared of two counts of indecent assault and one count of administering a drug or other thing in order to facilitate sexual intercourse.
