Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris has applied for permission to appeal against his convictions for a string of indecent assaults.

A spokesman for the Judicial Office confirmed that lawyers for the 84-year-old had lodged papers at the Court of Appeal this week.

The artist and musician was convicted of 12 indecent assaults on June 30 at Southwark Crown Court - including one against a girl then-aged eight in Portsmouth.

Other offences were committed on two on girls in their early teens and a catalogue of abuse of his daughter's friend over 16 years.

More money for the blood sucking Lawyers. All they see are ££££'s. No morality they just hide behind human rights and so-called justice system.
