Looking dishevelled in a T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms, unshaven former Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood is pictured for the first time since a sex scandal engulfed him four months ago.

The hip-hop DJ, 64, had been keeping a low profile since claims surfaced in April.

He ventured out of his central London home but was in no mood to speak when asked by the Daily Mail to comment on accusations of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behaviour.

Scotland Yard detectives are investigating four sex allegations against Westwood dating back 40 years.

Earlier this month, it emerged that the BBC received several reports about Westwood in 2012, including two allegations of inappropriate behaviour and sexual misconduct – and an accusation that he ‘created a toxic atmosphere amongst those he worked with’.
