Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris, a household name in Britain and Australia for decades, was on Friday jailed for five years and nine months by a judge in London for a string of sexual assaults against girls and young women.

The Australian-born television star, artist and songwriter, 84, was found guilty earlier this week of indecent assault against four victims between 1968 and 1986, including the best friend of his daughter Bindi.
