Former TV star Rolf Harris has been released from jail after nearly three years, Sky News understands.

He was sentenced to five years and nine months in July 2004.

The 87-year-old will remain on bail while on trial at Southwark Crown Court where he is charged with indecent assault.

Previously Harris has appeared via videolink from Stafford Prison.

Harris is accused of indecently assaulting three teenage girls in the 1970s and 1980s.

It is also alleged that the former host of Animal Hospital touched a 13-year-old girl's breast after filming a children's TV show and asked her: "Do you often get molested on a Saturday morning?"

Harris is separately accused of groping a third girl aged 16 twice after appearing on the ITV celebrity show Star Games in 1978.

He denies four charges of indecent assault against three women between 1971 and 1983.

The trial will resume on Monday.
