"You took advantage of the fact that you were above suspicion" the prosecution allege to Rolf Harris.

Asked to explain what he meant in a letter of apology he later wrote to the woman's father, Sasha Wass QC accused Harris of thinking he was "untouchable".

The entertainer denies 12 counts of indecent assault between 1968 and 1986.
