Former DJ and music producer Jonathan King has denied a series of sexual abuse offences against 12 teenage boys.

Mr King, appearing at Southwark Crown Court under his birth name of Kenneth George King, pleaded not guilty to each of the 18 counts.

He was released on bail to appear again on 11 June.
