Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris has arrived at London's Southwark Crown Court to enter pleas to 12 counts of indecent assault on girls.

The 83-year-old from Bray, Berkshire walked into the building accompanied by his wife Alwen, whom he pushed in a wheelchair, and other relatives.

Mr Harris is accused of assaulting four girls between 1968 and 1986.

He is also charged with four counts of making indecent images of a child between March and July 2012.

At an earlier magistrates' court hearing, his lawyer indicated he would be pleading not guilty.
