Clifford 'lunged at sex victim', court told

An extra in a James Bond film has told a court she kicked publicist Max Clifford between the legs when he allegedly "lunged" at her after promising he could get her a role alongside Charles Bronson.

The woman, one of seven alleged victims of indecent assault by Clifford, told London's Southwark Crown Court Clifford suggested he become her agent after she landed a minor part in Octopussy in the early 1980s.

VICTIM

Jurors also heard evidence from film executive Barbara Broccoli, who denied her father, Bond producer Cubby Broccoli, ever met Clifford.

The court heard that Clifford claimed he represented Cubby Broccoli, and told one alleged victim she would have to sleep with the producer so she could be in one of his films. But Ms Broccoli (53), said: "As far as I know he did not know him."

Clifford (70), from Hersham in Surrey, is accused of 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls. He denies all the charges.

The trial continues.
