A former Radio One DJ from Buckinghamshire has been charged with 12 sexual offences dating back to 1976.
Dave Lee Travis, of Mentmore, near Leighton Buzzard, faces 11 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault.
The 68-year-old is due to appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on August 23 charged with offences that allegedly took place between 1976 and 2007.
Mr Travis was arrested by officers from Operation Yewtree on November 15, 2012 and subsequently bailed to return pending further inquiries.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service he has been charged today.
Although Mr Travis has been charged as part of Operation Yewtree, Scotland Yard say the DJ falls under the strand of the investigation termed ‘others’.
