Paedophile DJ Denning handed 13-year prison sentence

By Rachael Burnett

Disgraced former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has been jailed for 13 years for child sex abuse.

The prolific paedophile (75) used his fame to groom and attack dozens of young victims in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

He took some of the boys to London on several occasions and introduced them to other celebrities, including Gary Glitter.

Denning, one of Radio 1's founding presenters, was sentenced to a total of 13 years' imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court for abusing 11 boys, some as young as eight.

Denning is already serving a 13-year jail sentence for a catalogue of sexual assaults against 24 victims, including one allegedly at Jimmy Savile's house.
