Ex-DJ from Basildon Admits Abuse Charges
Former BBC DJ Chris Denning has pleaded guilty to a string of sex offences against young boys.
Denning, 73, from Basildon, admitted 29 charges involving boys as young as nine when he appeared at Southwark Crown Court in London.
But he denied a further 12 charges and will face trial on November 24th.
The offences he admitted were committed between 1967 and 1984 and involved boys aged from nine to 16.
Denning was one of the original Radio 1 line-up when the station was launched in 1967.
He was also the first announcer heard on BBC2 when the television channel took to the air in 1964.
He was first arrested by detectives from sex crime inquiry Operation Yewtree in June last year.
Denning, wearing spectacles and a grey fleece, entered the 41 pleas with a clear voice.
Judge Alistair McCreath told him he would be remanded in custody until his trial, which is expected to last up to two weeks.
A crackdown, aimed at tackling online child abuse in Essex has seen more than 40 people arrested in the last six months.
After appearing on TV, the family of missing Clacton man, Nigel Kedar, have issued an appeal.
