Ex-DJ re-arrested over abuse claims

Chris Denning has been re-arrested over abuse claims

Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has been arrested over further allegations of sexual offences.

Chris was arrested as part of the police investigation sparked by the Jimmy Savile abuse claims.

The 72-year-old was re-arrested at an address in east London today and has been re-bailed until October.

He was originally arrested on June 3 on suspicion of sexual offences and later released on bail.

The claims against him are not linked to disgraced television presenter Savile.

Chris was one of Radio 1's original DJs in the 60s and his shows included a weekly slot as well as filling in for Tony Blackburn on the breakfast programme.

You should be justifiably proud of your progress. It isn't easy to break a bad habit, but you've managed to do so. A perverse side of your personality may tempt you to fall back on the old ways, just to give yourself another challenge. Ignore these impulses. Channel your energy in a positive direction instead. Learning to make clothes, furniture or jewellery will be a great use of your creative ability. You'll be especially successful if you use old, discarded materials in your work.More
