DJ Neil Fox appeared in court yesterday charged with nine sex offences against six girls and women aged between 14 and 36 over a period of 20 years - including forcing himself on three teenagers at a theme park and motor show.

In an unusual move the Magic FM presenter's barrister, Jonathan Caplan QC, asked for reporting restrictions on the charges to be lifted because they were already circulating on social media.

The allegations against the 53-year-old, known as Dr Fox, say he forcefully kissed three girls under the age of 16.

One of the complainants alleges that Mr Fox repeatedly assaulted her at Capital Radio's studios in Leicester Square in London. Two other women claim to have been sexually touched against their will at Magic FM's premises in Winsley Street in central London, between January 2003 and August 2014.

Mr Fox entered pleas of "not guilty". He was granted bail to appear in court on April 30.
