PR GURU MAX Clifford has pleaded not guilty to 11 charge of indecent at a London court this morning, reports BBC News.

The 70-year-old from Hersham in Surrey appeared briefly at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He has been bailed until the next hearing on 12 June.

The incidents allegedly took place between 1966 and 1985 against seven female complainants, the youngest of whom was 14.

Clifford was initially arrested on 6 December 2012 over allegations of sexual offences as part of the investigation which began into BBC presenter Jimmy Savile.

Clifford has strenuously denied all allegations, stating they are “completely false”.

“I have never indecently assaulted anyone in my life and this will become clear during the course of proceedings,” he said last month.
