Max Clifford found guilty of 8 counts of indecent assault

Max Clifford, the PR guru, has been found guilty of eight counts of indecent assault, including charges against a girl as young as 15, with sentencing to take place on Friday.

Clifford was found not guilty of two counts at Southwark Crown Court, and the jury was hung on one count of indecent assault, with all alleged 1960s and 1980s.

Rosina Cottage QC had called 71-year-old Clifford a "master in the art of intimidation", saying that he treated the office as his "sexual fiefdom".

The PR man had denied claims against them, saying that they were made by "fantasists and opportunists".

Members of Clifford’s staff began crying when the verdicts were announced today.
