DJ Dave Lee Travis, who has denied the charges of sexual offences against him, has revealed that groping behaviour was the "norm" during the 1970s.


The 68-year-old British radio presenter admitted that his reputation was everything to him so if he had touched someone's breasts he would admit it, the BBC reported.

While describing the claims as "absurd and ridiculous", Travis said that he would have been insane to grope anyone in a BBC studio.

He is charged with counts of indecent assault between 1976 and 2003 and a sexual assault in 2008, involving a total of 11 women who were aged between 15 and 29 at the time of the alleged offences.
