"I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency."

Pressure has been mounting in recent days over the royal role of Andrew, the Queen's second son, after his high-profile interview which was broadcast on Saturday.

Firms including telecoms giant BT and bank Barclays are among a number of multimillion-pound businesses, universities and charities which have distanced themselves from the royal.

Following his interview on BBC's Newsnight, Andrew was accused of failing to show remorse over his friendship with paedophile Epstein, who died in prison earlier this year.

Epstein was awaiting trial accused of trafficking girls as young as 14 for sex and had previously served time in prison in 2008 for prostituting underage girls.

In the interview, Andrew said that Epstein's house had been "a convenient place to stay" in 2010 when he claimed he went to end their friendship.

He also denied he had met Virginia Roberts-Giuffre, who claimed she had been trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with a number of his associates, including Andrew, when she was 17.


A Sky News poll found that just 6% of the public believed Andrew's explanation of his friendship with Epstein.

Lisa Bloom, representing five of Epstein's victims, told Sky News that Andrew's TV interview was "deeply disappointing".

She said: "He seems utterly lacking in the compassion and the astonishment that the rest of the world has felt after hearing from Jeffrey Epstein's victims."

Earlier this week, a woman who claims to have been trafficked and abused by Epstein called on Andrew to speak to US law officials.

The unnamed woman did not make allegations against Andrew directly, but said the Duke and "any others who are close to Epstein should come forward and give a statement under oath on what information they have".
