Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris will stand trial next April accused of indecent assaulting young girls, a court heard today.

The 83-year-old faces nine counts of indecent assault and four of making indecent images of a child.

Harris was excused from attending today’s preliminary hearing before Mr Justice Nicol at the Old Bailey in London.

A plea hearing at Southwark Crown Court was provisionally set for January 14.

Harris’s trial will start on April 30.
