BBC Radio DJ Tim Westwood interviewed under police caution for fourth time
BBC Radio DJ Tim Westwood has been interviewed under police caution for the fourth time following allegations of sexual misconduct, it has been reported.
The alleged offences are reported to have been committed between 1982 and 2016.
Westwood has denied all the accusations against him and stepped down from his role as a host on Capital Xtra in April 2022.
In a statement issued on Thursday, October 26, the Metropolitan Police said: “Police are investigating a number of reports relating to allegations of non-recent sexual offences allegedly committed by a man.
The offences are alleged to have occurred in London between 1982 and 2016.” No arrest has been made.
Westwood was first accused of sexual misconduct last April by seven women who took part in a BBC documentary.
In August, police said they were investigating a number of sexual offences which date back to 1982.
Westwood’s team has released a statement saying that he “strongly denies all allegations of inappropriate behaviour” and that “there have never been any complaints made against him officially or unofficially”.
Westwood began his career by setting up sound systems in clubs in northwest London.
He then became a warm-up act for David Rodigan, playing reggae and jazz-funk.
He then worked on local radio before joining Capital Radio in London and then the BBC.
Westwood hosted a regular Saturday show on Capital Xtra, in which he was known as “The Big Dawg”, until he left last year after the initial claims came to light.
In July, the BBC said it had received six complaints against Westwood, including one that was referred to police.
The police investigation into Tim Westwood is ongoing and no arrest has been made.
