Police receive new complaints after Clifford conviction

Max Clifford's conviction has led to more complaints about the celebrity publicist, the former detective TV presenter who triggered the police investigation into Clifford has said.

Mark Williams-Thomas, who was first contacted by a victim, described Clifford as a "narcissistic, controlling individual, a predator" who is "now behind bars as a convicted child sex offender".

He told BBC Radio 4's PM programme: "I can tell you as a direct result of the prosecution having a guilty verdict that I am now aware of other people who have come to me and those individuals are being spoken to and passed on to the police."

Mr Williams-Thomas also made the documentary exposing Jimmy Savile.
