Rolf Harris faces new Yewtree sex offences allegations

Australian entertainer Rolf Harris has been rearrested by police over further allegations of sexual offences.

He was first arrested in March by officers from Operation Yewtree, which was set up after claims of sex abuse were made against Jimmy Savile.

Mr Harris's arrest was unrelated to the former BBC DJ and TV presenter.

The Metropolitan Police said an 83-year-old had been "further arrested in connection with further allegations", and rebailed until later in August.

Mr Harris denies any wrongdoing.
