A woman has told Southwark Crown Court that children's entertainer Rolf Harris assaulted her several times as a teenager, including once when his own daughter was in the same room. The alleged victim - who cannot be named for legal reasons - called Harris's actions "creepy."

Mr Harris, 84, is alleged to have abused the girl from the age of 13 at her home, as well at his, and on holiday.

Seven of the 12 counts are alleged to take been carried out on the woman giving evidence today, who was friends with Mr Harris' daughter Bindi.

According to BBC News, the woman claims that once while she was staying with Rolf and the family - before she was 16 - he performed a sex act on her while Bindi was asleep. The two beds were "close together" but Mr Harris did not seem inhibited, she told the court.

The alleged assaults at her home are said to have taken place after the girl went on holiday with Mr Harris and the family, having been invited by Bindi. She was 13 at the time he alleges Mr Harris assaulted her in a Hawaii hotel when she was wearing only a towel. 

The case took a strange turn last week after the jury was told that Mr Harris - who denies all charges - wrote a letter to the girl's parents years later, apologising for her experiences but claiming he was unaware of how she felt. He maintained their relationship only occurred when she was older.
