Rolf Harris Arrives At Court For Assault Trial

Rolf Harris has arrived at Southwark Crown Court where he faces trial for 12 counts of indecent assault.

The 84-year-old entertainer is accused of assaulting four girls, aged between seven and nineteen, between 1968 and 1986. He denies the charges.

Jury selection is expected to begin on Tuesday and the prosecution will then open its case.

Harris, from Bray, Berkshire, pleaded not guilty to all 12 charges during a hearing at the court in January. He arrived at court with his wife Alwen and his security team.

His trial, in front of Mr Justice Sweeney, is expected to last more than six weeks.
