DJ Tim Westwood is facing allegations from a woman who says they had sex several times starting when she was 14.
 

She says 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. 

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 Westwood when they were under 18. 

One says that she was only 14 when she first had sex with Westwood. Another says she was 16 when the DJ, who was in his 40s at the time, began what she says was a "controlling" relationship with her. Both women say their relationships affected their mental health. 

Two other women say they were in their mid-teens when they were sexually assaulted by Westwood.
