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".
