Dave Lee Travis shouts in court at grope claim journalist Camilla Long

Camilla Long who was shouted at by Dave Lee Travis in Court

He tried to get columnist Camilla Long, 35, to leave the public gallery when he saw her waiting for his sentencing hearing to start.

When Travis saw her at Southwark Crown Court, he tapped on the glass-walled dock, saying: “You’re making me uncomfortable. Get where you should be – in the press gallery.”

When she replied that there were no seats available, Travis turned to the packed press gallery and said: “Anybody want to give her a seat?”

The exchange was interrupted when the judge entered the courtroom and Miss Long remained where she was.

Oxford-educated Miss Long claimed in a 2012 article that he had touched her repeatedly.

She wrote: “I don’t think there is a part of my body that he didn’t grope. He fondled my foot, inched his hands up my thighs, tried to make me sit on his lap and kissed me.”

Miss Long’s allegations did not form part of the prosecution’s case.

Leading bishop resigns from the Catholic church following ‘affair’ scandal

Leading bishop resigns from the Catholic church following 'affair' scandal

The Rt Reverend Kieran Conry, the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, resigned from his post after he admitted to breaking his clerical vows, leading to speculation he had an affair.

Conry’s apology was read out in all churches of the Diocese on Saturday evening and Sunday.

The apology read: “I am sorry to confess that, going back some years, I have been unfaithful to my promises as a Catholic priest. I would like to reassure you that my actions were not illegal and did not involve minors.

“As a result, however, I have decided to offer my resignation as bishop with immediate effect and will now take some time my future. I want to apologise first of all to the individuals hurt by my actions and then to all of those inside out outside the diocese who will be shocked, hurt and saddened to hear this. I am sorry for the shame that I have brought on the diocese and the Church and I ask for you prayers and forgiveness.”

Conry is sworn to celibacy and his resignation will heap huge embarrassment on the Catholic Church. His resignation is understood to relate to an affair the 63-year-old priest bishop had with a married woman, according to one report.
