Rolf Harris should 'feel what it's like to lose freedom'

A BBC reporter who says she was assaulted by Rolf Harris says the disgraced entertainer should be made to "feel what it's like to lose your freedom".

Harris was yesterday convicted of indecently assaulting young girls, and up to 12 people have now made fresh allegations against the television presenter.

Letitia Fitzpatrick, who claims she was a victim of the 84-year-old's behaviour in 1991, said she was "hugely relieved" for the entertainer's victims who had to witness him "sing and dance on the stand" while denying what he had done.

"He can imprison people mentally by harming them and maybe he should feel what it's like to lose your freedom," she added.
