King faces new sex charges

Pop mogul Jonathan King was yesterday charged with 11 sex offences against youngsters going back to the 1970s, police said.

King, 55, was charged with seven counts of buggery on males aged under 16, one count of attempted buggery on a male aged under 16 and three counts of indecent assault.

The indecent assaults include one count on a male aged 17 and two counts on males aged under 16, Surrey Police said.

King was granted conditional bail to appear before Staines Magistrates Court on February 1.

A police spokesman said that the charges related to "historic" incidents alleged to have happened in the 1970s.

Last November King was charged with buggery, attempted buggery and indecent assault on males aged under 16.

At the time of his arrest last year he said: "I categorically deny these absurd allegations about events from 28 years ago."
