Glitter faces sex charges

Gary Glitter has appeared in court accused of plying a schoolgirl with ­alcohol so he could have sex with her.

The former pop star faces a string of charges relating to alleged sex offences against two underage girls in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The 70-year-old appeared at London's Southwark Crown Court, where he appeared under his real name, Paul Gadd.

He is accused of eight charges, with six relating to one girl and two to another.

He was released on bail for a plea and case management hearing on August 20.
