    Judge Deborah Taylor formally found him not guilty of all four charges of indecent assault, which he had denied.

    Rolf Harris

    Jurors trying former entertainer Rolf Harris over alleged sex attacks have been discharged after failing to reach verdicts.

    The 87-year-old had been accused of indecently assaulting three teenage girls, the youngest of whom was 13, at public events between 1971 and 1983.

    But after deliberating for just under five hours at Southwark Crown Court in London, the jury said they were unable to reach verdicts on any of the four charges and were discharged by Judge Deborah Taylor.

    It was a retrial for Mr Harris on three of the four counts, after a jury in a previous trial at the same court in January and February failed to reach verdicts.
