A teenage girl developed an eating disorder and abandoned her dream of becoming a theatre star after Rolf Harris abused her, a court has heard.

Australian Tonya Lee, who has waived her right to anonymity, said she was on a theatre trip to the UK in 1986 when the entertainer fondled her.

She told Southwark Crown Court the incident had left her depressed, like she "didn't have a place in the world".

Mr Harris, 84, from Bray, Berkshire, denies 12 counts of indecent assault.

David Sillito reports.
