Rolf Harris challenges convictions for 12 indecent assaults

Rolf Harris has applied for permission to appeal against his convictions for several indecent assaults, which took place between 1968 and 1986.

The entertainer was convicted of 12 indecent assaults on girls aged between seven or eight and 19, and was jailed for five years and nine months.

There were 150 complaints over the leniency of the sentence but the Attorney General decided against reviewing it.
