Scotland Yard Investigate New Allegations Against Max Clifford As More Women Come Forward

More allegations following yesterday's sentencing.


Scotland Yard have confirmed that they are investigating fresh claims of abuse against disgraced PR guru, Max Clifford. 

On Friday the publicist received an eight year prison sentence after being found guilty of eight sex offences against women aged 15 and 19 carried out between 1977 and 1984.

Following his sentencing yesterday a spokesman for Scotland Yard confirmed other people had since come forward with allegations.

According to The Independent the spokesman said: “We have received further information and this is currently subject to review.”

Clifford will be placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

During the sentencing at Southwark Crown Court, Judge Anthony Leonard told Clifford: “The reason why your crimes were not brought to light sooner was because of your own dominant character and your position in the world of entertainment which meant your victims thought that you were untouchable, something that I think you too believed.

“These offences may have taken place a long time ago, when inappropriate and trivial sexual behaviour was more likely to be tolerated, but your offending was not trivial, but of a very serious nature.

“You targeted vulnerable women who you thought would comply because they were desperate to succeed in a career where success can be illusive.”

Adding: “I find your behaviour quite extraordinary and a further indication that you show no remorse.”

When asked if he had anything he would like to say,  the publicist replied, “there’s a lot I’d like to say”, however refused to apologise to his victims.

“It’s not the best day of my life. It’s like living under a cloud. It’s like when I had prostate cancer.”

After being asked about the guilty verdicts, Clifford responded: “I stand by everything I have said in the last 17 months.”

It is believed that the 71-year-old’s business, Max Clifford Associates, will also close following the departure of a number of clients.
