Rolf Harris has had one of his 12 indecent assault convictions overturned at the Court of Appeal.
Harris, 87, did not appear in court for the ruling, which saw three judges rule one of his convictions 'unsafe'. The conviction was in relation to an alleged incident which took place in 1969, involving an eight-year-old girl.
His lawyers presented new evidence which put into doubt a key witness' statement at his original trial.

However, his applications to appeal the other 11 convictions were dismissed, the BBC reports.
The judges said that "stepping back and looking at the totality of the evidence" on those remaining counts "we find nothing that causes us to doubt the safety of those convictions".
There will not be a retrial for the overturned conviction.
The former entertainer and painter was jailed in 2014 for 12 indecent assaults which took place between 1968 and 1986. He denied all charges.
He was sentenced to five years and nine months, and was released in May this year after serving almost three years.
Shortly after his release, he was formally cleared of an
additional four counts of sexual assault after a retrial ended in a hung jury.
