Glitter sex abuse appeal rejected
BBC breaking news graphic
An appeal by former British rocker Gary Glitter against a three-year jail term for child sex abuse has been rejected by a Vietnamese court.

In March, the former glam-rock idol was convicted of molesting two girls, aged 11 and 12, and jailed for three years.

Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, has admitted letting a girl into his bed but denies committing abuse.

He achieved fame in the 1970s with such hits as I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am), and Do You Wanna Touch.
