Detectives from Operation Yewtree have visited a woman in Australia as part of their investigation into entertainer Rolf Harris.

Two Scotland Yard detectives spent two hours in the house of the woman in New South Wales, Australia, earlier today.

According to ITV "Exposure's" Mark Williams-Thomas, a former detective who broke the Jimmy Savile story, at least one further allegation is also being investigated and this, along with a number of other enquiries, meant that it was necessary for officers to travel to Australia.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed detectives from Operation Yewtree were in Australia but would not comment further.

Rolf Harris was interviewed under caution in November last year, and arrested in March on suspicion of sexual offences. Harris is yet to comment on the claims.
