Rolf Harris has arrived back at his home in Berkshire this morning, following his release from Stafford Prison earlier today.

Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months in 2014 and is now facing indecent assault charges at Southwark Crown Court, where he has been appearing via video link.

The former entertainer, 87, will be released on bail as he faces a fresh trial over alleged indecent assault offences.

In separate allegations, the TV presenter stands accused of groping a 16-year-old girl after appearing on ITV's Star Games in 1978 and allegedly telling her she was 'a little bit irresistible'.

Harris is accused of four counts of indecent assault dating between 1971 and 1983.

The judge, Deborah Taylor, said Rolf, who denies all charges against him, will be granted bail.

Harris has been watching the court proceedings via video link from Stafford Prison in the English Midlands after receiving permission to do this because of his age.

But she said she felt empowered by Harris' conviction and began to feel "I might be vindicated".

She told jurors: "I was in shock because I couldn't comprehend what had just happened". Should Rolf Harris have been released on bail?

He denies all four charges of indecent assault.

But she said she later told "countless other people" that Harris was a "pervert".

She said her sister did not believe Harris had assaulted her.

Mr Harris had been attending his trial via video link.
