ROLF Harris is to be charged with seven counts of indecent assault.

The alleged offences date from 1971 to 2004 and relate to seven complainants who were aged between 12 and 27 at the time, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

A CPS spokesman said: “We have carefully considered the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police Service as part of Operation Yewtree in relation to Rolf Harris.

“Having completed our review in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Harris to be charged with seven counts of indecent assault.”

Harris will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on March 17.
