Outrage as DJ Tim Westwood is accused of sex with a 14-year-old

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Outrage as DJ Tim Westwood is accused of sex with a 14-year-old got. 


She says Mr Westwood was in his 30s at the time and describes him as a "predator".

The woman is one of several to come forward after an investigation by BBC News and the Guardian, with claims of misconduct and abuse dating from 1990 to 2020.

Mr Westwood did not respond to a request for comment.

It is illegal in the UK to have sex with a 14-year-old.

In April, a number of women accused the former Radio 1 DJ of predatory and unwanted sexual behaviour and touching, in incidents between 1992 and 2017. They also accused him of abusing his position in the music industry.

BBC News and the Guardian have investigated the stories of 10 women who came forward after the initial revelations. Some of the women told us they encountered Mr Westwood when they were under 18.

"He didn't look shocked or anything," she says. When she asked him if she could continue coming, he said, "Sure you can."

"I think we exchanged numbers and he just started, 'Oh are you coming tonight, you know, so I can leave your name at the door.' And then I'd say it was a couple of months after that he asked to meet up with me at Hammersmith Station."

She says the DJ met her in west London and drove her to a flat. He offered her a drink but she said she just wanted a juice. They sat and talked - and then he kissed her.

"I was like, OK, I don't have a problem with that. And then, it progressed from there. We had sex."

This would not be the only time. The DJ, she says, would call her at home - after 18:00 because he knew her mum worked nights - and they would arrange to meet.

"I never gave consent [to sex], but I never said no either so, I just went along with it," she says.

A statement from a representative of Westwood to the PA news agency in April said: “Tim Westwood strongly denies all allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

“In a career that has spanned 40 years, there have never been any complaints made against him officially or unofficially.

“Tim Westwood strongly rejects all allegations of wrongdoing.”

The DJ, who is the son of Bill Westwood, the former Anglican bishop of Peterborough who died in 1999, began his career on local radio before joining Capital Radio in London.

He was later given his own show by BBC Radio 1.

He left Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra in 2013 after nearly 20 years and returned to Capital Xtra to host a regular show on Saturday nights, where he was referred to as “The Big Dawg”. He stepped down from his show on Capital Xtra in April.
