Rolf Harris a 'sweet, honest man'

The daughter of paedophile Rolf Harris has broken her silence about her father's convictions to claim he is a "kind, sweet, honest man" wrongfully jailed. Disgraced former children's entertainer Harris was jailed for nearly six years for carrying out a string of sex attacks on girls as young as seven or eight.

His trial heard harrowing evidence from his victims who told how the abuse had "haunted" them with one describing how he made her feel "dirty, grubby and disgusting". But his daughter Bindi Nicholls (left) is campaigning to clear his name and a petition on change.org is calling for authorities to "review the case as a matter of urgency".
