Rolf Harris has written a "disgusting" song from his prison cell, attacking the women whose lives he ruined, according to The Mail on Sunday.

The lyrics are contained in a letter the disgraced children's entertainer sent from Category C Stafford Prison to someone close to him, it is claimed.

Harris' friend is said to have been so appalled by its contents, he decided to hand it to the paper.

In the letter, the convicted paedophile displays no remorse for his crimes, and brands his victims as money-grabbing mercenaries.

He describes the women as "woodworms" who have "climbed up out of the woodwork from 40 years ago".

The 84-year-old says he plans to record the song "the moment I get out" - and envisages a "country rock sound with a heavy back beat".

Harris, who was jailed for six years in 2014 for 12 indecent assaults on girls, aged between seven and 19, believes he will get parole "towards the end of 2017".

He describes life behind bars as "no hardship" and says he is working as an assistant to the tutor in the prison art room.

One of Harris' victims told The Mail on Sunday she was "totally revolted" by the letter.

"Despite convictions on every count he has shown no remorse and continues to think he can treat his victims like dirt," she said.

"His arrogance is beyond belief. I am devastated by reading this and it will set back my recovery at a time when I am trying to rebuild my shattered life."

Liz Dux, a solicitor from Slater and Gordon, who represent his victims, said Harris should be denied the right to apply for parole.

"And if he is allowed to apply, I sincerely hope this letter is taken into account and he is made to serve his full sentence," she said.

"He put these women through hell during the trial. He has shown them nothing but contempt and arrogance, even in the way he assaulted them.

"They will be distraught at this disgusting song. They came forward because they wanted to see him face justice - it was nothing to do with claiming compensation."

Harris attacked his victims between 1968 and 1986.
