Rolf Harris' jail sentence will not be challenged

Rolf Harris will not see his jail term challenged by the Government's chief legal adviser for being too lenient. A spokeswoman Attorney General Jeremy Wright's office said he will not refer the disgraced entertainer's sentence of five years and nine months to the Court of Appeal.

The decision comes despite his office receiving 150 complaints about the leniency of Harris' sentence. Harris, 84, was convicted as a paedophile following his conviction for 12 indecent assaults at the end of last month.

Drinkers who offend to wear 'alcohol bracelet'

Authorities are expecting some 150 offenders to be tagged as part of the scheme.

Offenders who are convicted of a booze-fuelled crime may be forced to wear an alcohol bracelet to monitor their drinking, under a new pilot scheme.

Four London boroughs - Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Sutton - will trial the scheme, where offenders are forced to wear the alcohol monitor for four months at a time.

The bracelet measures the amount of alcohol in their sweat and they may face further penalties if they are found drinking.
