Yewtree: Dave Lee Travis Rearrested.

images (2)

Once again, publicly naming a person alleged to have committed a sex crime has led to more women having the confidence to come forward. The original allegations involved just two women, Dave Lee Travis has been rearrested after allegations of a further 11 incidents have been reported to Op Yewtree.

I should stress that Dave Lee Travis has said that none of these allegations involve children and I believe him.

For my list of those who’ve been arrested or questioned by Op Yewtree so far, check here

Veteran DJ Dave Lee Travis has been questioned about a string of new allegations of sexual assault.

The 67-year-old was re-arrested by Scotland Yard detectives when he answered bail as part of Operation Yewtree.

It is understood officers quizzed him about up to 11 fresh ‘incidents’ that have come to light.

They are believed to involve several new alleged victims who came forward amid the blaze of publicity surrounding his original arrest last November.

Travis already faces claims from two adult women that he molested them in the 1970s and 80s at the height of his fame as one of Britain’s best-loved DJs.

    Why haven’t they pulled in all the other big names that we know about but can’t name in public?
    Why haven’t they re-arrested those other big names?
    Why haven’t there been any convictions?

  2. No aristocrats yet only the little runners, what an unfair little pathetic country we Brits live in, a country of bullshit and illusions and unbelievable deceit, all because of greedy manipulative Aristocrates raping and killing underage children of the dirty smelly working class riff-raff, people who in there eye were no better than dogshit on the pavements, its been happening since Adam and Eve, knows the first time in history to really have a go to stop it.

    Andy, I am sorry to hear about your being abused and the fact that the “manager” wasn’t interested. Funny how many people think that we. the public, wouldn’t be interested in men sexually abusing children. Makes you wonder if he was on the level. Do they think all of us are obsessed with an endless supply of vacuous celebrities that are so far up their own arses that they can see their knighthood

      @dogman, I am trying to compile the details of my life and abuse in care as it has been suppressed for 20 years and is nothing that you should apologise for as it was a failure in the dysfunctional system in which i was placed, but thank you for the concern.
      I do have a story to tell and it will be told soon.

    Stumbled across BBC Radio 2 the other day. Guy I could never stand – Simon Mayo and his confessionals.. Very bad taste considering what is unravelling within the Catholic Church at present

    • Heresay

      Not everyone in the UK is bothered about the goings on in the Catholic Church, likewise not everyone is bothered about the various investigations going on with the guest houses or schools or any other institution in the UK. A few dodgy men in frocks preaching the bible that take a fancy to alter boys shouldn’t really mean that the ‘Cofessional’ spot on Radio 2 is in bad taste.

    I was in contact with a reporter/researcher from channel 4 who’s name i will not be naming, she was interested in my story.
    So after telling her about my abuse and subsequent cover-up she went back to her manager who decided that the public just don’t have an appetite for such story’s and that was that.
    Thing is there are still five victims of the same abuser that i know the name of(passed to police but there still in the throws of heroin/crack addictions) and the abuser was free for ten more years and not on the register because he was first convicted in 1992 before the register had come into being, he was a prolific so there must be more.

      The average abuser (if there is such person) abuses 100 victims before he/she comes into contact with the authorities – sorry Andy, but you are not alone – not an `exclusive`, nothing to `hold the front page!- but it is a national disgrace

        This is a very brief outline of what happend to me and some context which i feel is should share.

        and this is the most recent pat of my and an others story, beween us we were able to get a considerable conviction.
        thing is the story behind the press clippings is only the tip of the ice berg.

      He would still be on criminal records if convicted

      • rainbowsophie

        He went down for 18 years only last year. In fact, in the general context of these crimes that’s a long time (especially when you compare it to how long the monsters from North Wales were sentenced for!). He must have had a very unsympathetic and non-corruptible judge. Good.

        Horrific story Andy, you are indeed a man of great courage and should be proud that you finally nailed him.

    Blimey – if I don’t sit on the computer all day going from one blog to another and then Twitter and back – I keep missing the big stories! When am I ever going to get any work done, that’s what I want to know ;)
