Publicist's 'indecent proposal'

By Tim Moynihan

Publicist Max Clifford groped a teenage model who went to him for career advice, and told her she could get a part in a James Bond film – but might have to sleep with producer Cubby Broccoli, a court has heard.

She said Clifford locked the door of his office and he kept saying how "turned on" he was as he carried out the attack.

The woman, one of seven alleged victims of indecent assault by Clifford, told London's Southwark Crown Court that she was advised to go to see him in 1983, when she was about 17.

The woman, who is now 48, rang police when she saw that Clifford had been arrested. Clifford, from Hersham in Surrey, is accused of 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls. He denies all the charges.
