Rolf Harris pleads not guilty to underage sex charges

ENTERTAINER Rolf Harris has pleaded not guilty to the sexual assault of four young girls.

The 83-year-old faces 15 charges relating to the alleged assault of girls aged between seven and 19 as far back as 1968.

Most charges involve allegations of touching.

Six of the charges stem from allegations Mr Harris performed oral sex on a 15-year-old girl in the '80s.

Supported by his wife, Mr Harris fronted a London court on Tuesday.

A trial was set for April 30.
