DJ Neil 'Dr' Fox cleared of sex assaults on fans and colleagues


Radio DJ Neil Fox has been cleared of sexually and indecently abusing young fans and colleagues.

Fox, 54,  broke down in tears as the verdicts were delivered at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Reading the verdicts during a four minute hearing, chief magistrate Howard Riddle said the victims were believable but that the bench "could not be sure that in the context it was a criminal offence".

The former Capital FM host and ex-Pop Idol judge faced a string of indecent assault and sexual assault charges in relation to alleged offences that dated back to the 1980s, against women and girls as young as 14.
