British DJ Dave Lee Travis was today charged with two further offences of indecent assault in addition to 12 counts he already faced.
The 68-year-old has been accused of assaulting a woman aged over 16 between January 1st 1992 and December 31st 1993, Scotland Yard said.
Mr Travis, of Mentmore, in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, has already appeared in court to face 12 counts, including indecent assault and sexual assault.
The former-BBC Radio 1 DJ was first charged on August 15th as part of Operation Yewtree, the police investigation prompted by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal, but the accusations against Mr Travis have no connection to the disgraced television presenter.
He is due to appear on bail at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday in relation to the new charges.
