A former school friend of one of Rolf Harris's alleged victims has told a court that she confided in her that he had "sexually abused her over many years" since she was 13 or 14.
The witness said she was "good friends" with the woman from the age of 14 and when they were both aged around 16 she told her that Harris was a "dirty old man" who would make her sit on his lap so he could "feel her up".
Harris, 84, listened from the dock at London's Southwark Crown Court where he is on trial for 12 charges of indecent assault between 1968 and 1986 - seven relating to the woman in question. He denies all the charges.
