Jimmy Savile's former flatmate and chauffeur appears in court charged with raping young girls

Jimmy Savile's former chauffeur appeared in court today charged with 15 counts of rape against young girls dating back to the 1960s.

Ray Teret, 72, a former pirate radio DJ who once shared a flat with the shamed BBC star, is accused of a series of sex offences over almost 35 years.

He appeared alongside two other men also charged with sexual offences and the hearing was told the trio are expected to deny all the allegations.

Teret, dressed in a dark suit and overcoat with a purple scarf, was not asked to enter any pleas during the brief hearing at which he was told his trial would take place next year.

He was first arrested in November last year on suspicion of a historic rape before being charged with a total of 32 sexual offences earlier this month.

Teret shared a flat with Savile in Manchester in the 1960s, working as a DJ at stations including Radio Caroline under the nickname 'Ugly Ray'.  (more...)
