Rolf Harris will be released from prison on Friday and is due to appear in person at his indecent assault trial next week, a jury has been told.

Mr Harris, from Bray, Berkshire, is being tried at Southwark Crown Court on four counts of indecent assault against three teenagers between 1971 and 1983.

The judge said Mr Harris, who denies all charges, will be granted bail.

Jurors have already been told Mr Harris, 87, was convicted and sentenced following a trial in 2014.

Mr Harris had been attending his trial via video link.

The court is currently hearing evidence from his second alleged victim, who claims he assaulted her in 1978 at a sports event in Cambridge when she was 16.

The trial will not be sitting on Friday.
