PR guru Clifford to face assault charges

PR guru Max Clifford is expected to appear in court today charged with 11 historic counts of indecent assault against teenage girls.

The 70-year-old, famed for representing celebrities including Simon Cowell and Jade Goody, has vowed to clear his name and has labelled the allegations against him ”a load of nonsense”.

Clifford, who has been charged with offences linked to girls aged from 14 to 19 between 1966 and 1985, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He was charged last month, having been arrested in December as part of Operation Yewtree, the national police inquiry sparked by allegations of abuse against Jimmy Savile.
