Ex-Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning admits appalling catalogue of sex crimes

One of the founding DJs of Radio 1 has admitted another appalling catalogue of sex crimes against young boys stretching across his showbiz career.

Chris Denning, 75, used his access to celebrities and an "Aladdin's cave" of pornography at his home to lure victims into his web of abuse.

He is already serving a 13-year prison sentence passed in 2014 for abusing 24 boys as young as eight in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

The depraved DJ - a close friend of Jimmy Savile who helped launched the career of paedophile popstar Gary Glitter - has now admitted another 11 victims fell into his clutches.

Denning was on the rostrum of DJs when Radio 1 was launched in 1967, lining up alongside the likes of Tony Blackburn, John Peel, and Terry Wogan.

He was the first voice heard on BBC 2, and helped propel stars including Glitter and the Bay City Rollers to stardom while at the helm of Decca Records.  (more...)
