Rolf Harris is accused of indecent assault of victims who were between seven and 19 years old.

The alleged sex abuse occurred between 1968 and 1986.

Harris, 84, is well-known in the United Kingdom. He painted a portrait of the Queen in 2005, and has been a constant face on British television screens for over 40 years.

He had his first musical success with Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport in 1960, and continued to enjoy success in the industry and build a career in television.

However, when life should have been about enjoying his retirement, Harris of Berkshire, faces 12 counts of indecent assault, to which he pleaded not guilty in court.

Rolf Harris was accompanied by his family, including his wife Alwen Hughes and daughter Bindi, as well as a team of security guards as he entered the Southwark Crown Court to face charges.
