Three female victims of Max Clifford are suing the disgraced publicist following his conviction for a string of indecent assaults.

The 71-year-old was sentenced to eight years in prison earlier this month for eight assaults on four women between 1977 and 1984.

The women's solicitor, Richard Scorer, said: "Clifford used his fame and public persona as a cloak to mask his sexual perversions. We are investigating all of Clifford's assets, including those of his companies, Max Clifford Associates and Max Clifford Media.

"We represent three women who have approached us for advice and we fully expect others to follow. I urge all of his victims to seek legal advice with a view to redress under the law."

Yesterday a judge signalled an end to Clifford's four-year marriage to wife Jo as the couple were granted a decree nisi in the Central Family Court in London.
