A jury has been sworn in for the trial of artist and entertainer Rolf Harris, who is accused of a string of indecent assaults.

The 84-year-old appeared at London's Southwark Crown Court today, accompanied by his wife Alwen.

She looked on from the public gallery with other family members as he sat in the glass-walled dock.

Mr Harris, from Bray in Berkshire, listened to proceedings through a hearing loop.

A panel of 12, made up of six men and six women, along with three extras, two men and one woman, were chosen from a pool of more than 20 potential members.

Mr Harris stood at the front of the dock as the process took place and the indictment was read out.
