Former entertainer Rolf Harris has had one of 12 indecent assault convictions overturned by the Court of Appeal.

Three judges in London ruled the conviction was “unsafe”. But they dismissed applications by Harris, 87, to challenge the other 11 convictions.

There will be no retrial on the one conviction quashed.

The Australian-born TV presenter had hoped to overturn the 12 convictions he was jailed for in 2014.

He was convicted of indecent assault against four girls, including one aged eight, between 1968 and 1986.
