Martin Brunt has raised his head reporting on Gary Glitter allegations

Sky News transcript only.

The 70-year-old former pop star enters not guilty pleas to ten charges relating to three alleged victims in the 1970s and 1980s

Gary Glitter has appeared in court to face 10 charges of sexual offences against three girls.

The 70-year-old denied the charges, which related to alleged crimes committed in the 1970s and early 1980s, at Southwark Crown Court.

The former rock star, whose real name is Paul Gadd, listened to proceedings at the court using a hearing device.

He is accused of one count of attempted rape and another of indecent assault on one girl under the age of 13 in 1975.

He faces four charges of indecent assault on a second alleged victim when she was under the age of 13 in 1977.

Gadd, from Marylebone, central London, is also accused of allegedly giving the girl alcohol to "stupefy or overpower" her into having sex with him between January and May 1977.

And he faces one charge of unlawful intercourse with a girl aged under 13 between the same dates with the same alleged victim.

The final charge involve two counts of indecent assault on a third alleged victim who was under the age of 16 between October 1979 and December 1980.

Judge Alistair McCreath told Gadd the trial will begin on 12 January and is expected to last three weeks.

Gadd is currently on bail.
