Rolf Harris has today been charged with nine counts of indecent assault and four of making indecent images of children, the police have revealed.

Harris, who was re-arrested on 5 August following suspicions as part of Operation Yewtree, will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 23 September.

Alison Saunders, chief Crown prosecutor for London, said: "Having completed our review, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Harris to be charged with nine counts of indecent assault and four of making indecent images of a child.

"The alleged indecent assaults date from 1980 to 1986 and relate to two complainants aged 14 and 15 at the time of the alleged offending."

According to the BBC, the indecent images of children were alleged to have been made last year.
