British TV entertainer Rolf Harris has been charged with a string of child sex offences, the police says.


The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that the 83-year-old TV presenter faces nine allegations of indecent assault against two girls and also four other allegations of making indecent images of a child between March and July 2012.

The offences are said to have occurred in 1980s, when Harris hosted a popular show on BBC1.

He is due to be present at Westminster magistrates’ court in London on September 23.

The Australian-born entertainer was first arrested in March this year as part of the Operation Yewtree inquiry into the abuse scandal surrounding Jimmy Savile.

Several high-profile figures have been arrested in connection with the investigation into Savile scandal, including singer Gary Glitter, radio presenter Stuart Hall, former TV producer Wilfred De'Ath and comedians Freddie Starr and Jim Davidson.

Earlier last week, former BBC radio DJ Dave Lee Travis appeared in court to face allegations of sexual offences dating from 1977 to 2007.
