Victim tells of moment Hall indecently assaulted her

A woman has told ITV News of the moment broadcaster Stuart Hall indecently assaulted her.

'Amy', who was prompted to go to the police after the Jimmy Savile case, said she was "relieved" Hall had pleaded guilty to 14 indecent assaults against girls aged between nine and 17, including an offence against her.

She was 17 when the veteran broadcaster sexually assaulted her.

She told ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning: "I am very, very relieved that it's all over, it's all over, and I can start thinking that what happened at that time wasn't my fault."
