Clifford spoke to journalists outside court

Clifford, from Hersham in Surrey, was arrested last December and was charged in April.

As he arrived at court, he told reporters: "I'm OK. Obviously I am totally innocent of these charges.

"It's been a very hard time for myself, my wife, my family, loved ones.

"I have been helped tremendously by the public support, everywhere I go. That obviously has made a huge difference."

A trial is expected to last up to four weeks and is scheduled to be held in March.
