Rolf Harris has been re-arrested by police under Operation Yewtree in connection with sexual offences after answering bail on Monday.

Allegations: Rolf Harris was first arrested in March

The 83-year-old Australian entertainer and former BBC presenter was first arrested in March and bailed following police enquiries. Scotland Yard said Harris had been "further arrested in connection with further allegations".

The police investigation was set up in response to revelations about former BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, who police believe abused hundreds of children.
