Prosecutor brands Dave Lee Travis 'a dirty old man'

Prosecutor Miranda Moore QC has told jurors at the trial of Dave Lee Travis to forget about his fame and treat him as a "normal member of the public, no more nor less".

Directing jurors to find Travis guilty, Ms Moore branded him a "dirty old man" and said "his celebrity might have given him protection in the past".

Referring to an alleged "pattern of consistent behaviour" she went on: "Why did 16 women make broadly similar allegations about the same man stretching back 30 years? And the answer is they're telling the truth."

Mr Travis denies 13 indecent assaults and one sexual assault.
