Gary Glitter has lost his appeal against a three year jail sentence for child sex abuse in Vietnam.

As previously reported on Gigwise Glitter was convicted back in March of molesting two girls aged 11 and 12.

At the hearing this morning in Ho Chi Minh City Glitter once again told reporters he was innocent as he entered the courtroom.

However, according the BBC Judge Truong Vinh Thuy rejected his claims, saying: "We did not see enough evidence to reduce the penalty for the defendant.”

He added: "The decision was made based on evidence, documents and testimony of the victims. The behaviour of the defendant is dangerous for society, especially towards children. He needs to be punished."

Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, shook his head as the verdict was read and shouted, "It's not a fair trial," as he was ushered out of the court.
