PUBLICIST MAX CLIFFORD was today convicted of eight counts of indecent assault against a number of different women aged as young as 15-years-old.

The assaults took place between 1977 and 1984 with Clifford becoming the first person convicted under Operation Yewtree. He will be sentenced on Friday.

This above video, released this evening by Sky News, was recorded by the broadcaster during the trial on 8 April but wasn’t live or shown at the time.

It shows Clifford sneaking up on reporter Tom Parmenter outside Southwark Crown Court and staying behind the correspondent as he continued his reported.

The PR guru, who had often courted media attention during his career, then proceeds to imitate Paramenter before he finishes his report and notices Clifford standing behind him.

No comment

After being convicted earlier today, Clifford left court with his daughter and, despite standing on front of the media for a minute, said only that, ”I’ve been told by my lawyers to say nothing at all.”
