Rolf Harris: Jury Selection Begins Today



Jury selection will begin today in the trial of Rolf Harris, who denies a string of indecent assaults.

The 84-year-old veteran entertainer is accused of assaulting four girls, the youngest of whom was seven or eight and the oldest aged 19, between 1968 and 1986.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Jury selection is expected to begin today at Southwark Crown Court, and the prosecution case to open later in the week.

Harris, from Bray in Berkshire, is facing 12 counts of indecent assault.

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