LBC Caller: I Was Victim of Rolf Harris

Tuesday 1st July 2014

A woman who says she was assaulted by Rolf Harris as a teenager has spoken exclusively to LBC.

'Claire' called Nick Ferrari this morning following the conviction of the 84 year old yesterday of 12 counts of indecent assault.

'Claire' was 17 and working at a radio station in New Zealand when she says the veteran entertainer groped her.

"He used to force me to sit on his knee and then he had serious wandering hand problems, like the boobs and elsewhere, and I had to literally peel him off me to get out again," she explained.

"I just was really, really shocked and upset because I just thought 'eww' my parents used to watch his programme and my father was a great artist and absolutely loved him and it was just really, really disappointing that he behaved in that way."

A judge has told Rolf Harris to expect a prison sentence when he is sentenced on Friday.
