Australian entertainer Rolf Harris is facing a further three charges of sexual assault in Britain, including one against a girl aged 7 or 8 in the late 1960s.

He was earlier charged with nine charges of indecent assault involving two complainants dating back to the 1980s, and four counts of making indecent images of children.

He now faces fresh charges of alleged assault against three females ranging in age from 7 to 14 and 19.

The Crown Prosecution Service says the new allegations relate to one existing complainant and two new ones.

Rolf Harris, 83, faces a plea hearing on 14 January when his defence has indicated he will plead not guilty.
