Rolf Harris questioned over sex allegations

9:56 pm on 19 April 2013

Veteran Australian entertainer Rolf Harris has been questioned by police over historic allegations of sexual offences.

The 83-year-old performer was interviewed under caution after attending police premises in south London by appointment in November last year, the BBC reports.

Mr Harris, who now lives in the English county of Berkshire, was arrested on 28 March and bailed until May.

He was apprehended as part of an inquiry set up to investigate claims made against former BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, although his arrest is unrelated.

Mr Harris, one of 12 people arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, has not yet made any public comment.
