Celebrity publicist Max Clifford said his ‘nightmare continues’ after appearing in court to deny a string of historic indecent assaults.

The 70-year-old, from Hersham in Surrey, faces 11 counts relating to seven alleged female victims between 1966 and 1984. Clifford appeared at Southwark Crown Court, in London, where he denied all charges.

Speaking outside court after the hearing, the publicist repeated that he was innocent. He said: “The nightmare continues, it has done since last December. I want to thank everyone for their support, in this country and abroad.

“It is a nightmare for myself and everyone close to me. I am totally innocent.

“Next March (the date of Clifford’s trial), as long as the truth comes out, it will be fine and I can get back to a normal life.”

Clifford was released on bail until his trial next March.
