Hall guilty pleas revealed as court restrictions lifted

Veteran BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall, 18, has pleaded guilty to 14 indecent assaults, relating to 13 girls between 1967 and 1986. The youngest victim was nine years old.

Hall entered the pleas at Preston Crown Court last month but they can only be revealed today after reporting restrictions were lifted.
