Former pop star Gary Glitter is due back in court today, accused of a string of historic sex offences against three girls.

The trial of the 70 year old, whose real name is Paul Gadd, will continue over 10 charges relating to alleged crimes committed in the 1970s and 1980.

Glitter, from Marylebone in central London, is accused of one count of attempted rape and another of indecent assault on a girl under the age of 13 in 1975.

In relation to a second complainant, he is charged with four counts of indecent assault when she was under 13 in 1977.

He is also accused of plying the girl with drink with the intention to “stupefy or overpower” her to have sex with him between January and May 1977.

Glitter also faces one charge of unlawful intercourse with a girl aged under 13 between the same dates in relation to the same girl.

In connection with a third complainant, who was under 16, he is charged with two counts of indecent assault between October 1979 and December 1980.

Glitter, who found fame in the 1970s as part of the glam rock scene, scoring number one hits with I’m The Leader of the Gang (I Am), I Love You Love Me Love and Always Yours, denies all the charges against him.

His trial at London’s Southwark Crown Court is due to last six weeks.
