Ten new alleged victims have come forward to police claiming they were abused by disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris.

A police source said the new allegations are from individuals in Australia, New Zealand and in Britain.

Several of the victims were under age at the time of the alleged attacks, which could mean Harris will face fresh charges.

Following an investigation by Operation YewTree, the TV personality was unmasked as a sexual predator, who preyed on fans as young as eight-years-old and even subjected his daughter's friend to a catalogue of abuse over a 16-year period.

Following the revelations of historical sexual abuse committed by Harris between 1968 and 1986, he was stripped of all the honours he had received throughout his career including a Bafta fellowship, while accolades in his native Australia were removed. He also faces losing his CBE.

He was jailed for five years and nine months. Passing sentence, Justice Sweeney said: "You have shown no remorse for your crimes at all. Your reputation now lies in ruins, you have been stripped of your honours but you have no one to blame but yourself."

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Orchard of the Met Police said that new claims had emerged during the course of the trial.

Operation Yewtree will deal with the fresh allegations relating to British victims, while those made abroad will be handled by local police.

It was recently reported that the 84-year-old has been transferred to Stafford jail, which has two separate wings for 'vulnerable' sex offenders, from HMP Bullingdon, in Oxfordshire.

He was moved prison following a number of incidents where he was targeted by fellow inmates.
