Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris has been spat at in prison, it has been claimed.
The 84-year-old was allegedly targeted during an incident at HMP Bullingdon in Oxfordshire.
A source told the Press Association there was a scuffle and "someone aimed a spit" at Harris.
The source said the perpetrator missed and Harris "was not spat on and was not physically hurt."
News of the incident came as it was announced Harris has applied for permission to appeal against his convictions for a string of indecent assaults.
A spokesman for the Judicial Office confirmed that lawyers had lodged papers at the Court of Appeal this week.
