Magistrates will deliver their verdicts in the trial of radio DJ Neil Fox, who is accused of sexually abusing young fans and colleagues, on December 14.

Prosecutors claim the 54-year-old, also known as Foxy or Dr Fox, exploited the privilege that came with his fame to abuse the women and girls when they were as young as 14.

After hearing defence closing submissions today, Chief Magistrate Howard Riddle told Westminster Magistrates' Court the bench "have a lot to consider" before deciding whether he is guilty of the 10 charges.

Fox, who became a household name presenting the chart show on Capital Radio, denies eight counts of indecent assault and two of sexual assault, all said to have taken place between 1988 and 2014.

Mr Riddle told Fox: "We have a lot to consider.

"I know you want an answer as soon as you can but we have to consider it carefully.

"It's important to you and to other people."

He said he would deliver the verdicts at 4pm on December 14.

Concluding his closing submissions, Jonathan Caplan QC, for the defence, called on the bench to find Fox not guilty and said the claims against him had been "devastating".

"We all know that obviously a reputation can be lost in a moment," Mr Caplan said.

"And sexual abuse as an allegation is a particularly toxic one.

"The effects on his career and on his wife and children have been devastating."
