Dave Lee Travis retrial expected to last two weeks

Dave Lee Travis's retrial is expected to last for two weeks, a court was told today.

The former BBC presenter was accused of indecently assaulting 10 women and sexually assaulting another in alleged incidents dating back to 1976 when he was at the height of his fame.

After a jury of eight women and four men deliberated for more than 20 hours, they found him not guilty of 12 indecent assault charges, but were not able to agree on a charge of alleged indecent assault against a woman in the early 1990s along with an alleged sexual assault on a journalist in 2008.

Judge Leonard told Travis: "You are to return to this court on the 28th March. You are re-admitted to bail as before."

Marianne, Travis's wife of more than 40 years, supported him from the public gallery during today's brief hearing. She was in court for the verdicts on February 13 but did not attend the four weeks of evidence.
