Stuart Hall's barrister asks for 'the mercy of the court'

Stuart Hall's barrister says his task is to apologise for what he's done and ask for the mercy of the court.

He says in the dock is a frightened and bewildered 83-year-old answering for touching no more no less of 13, not 1,300 women, a quarter of a century ago.

The reference from Hall's QC to only 13 victims, not 1300, is his barrister making comparisons with Jimmy Savile's actions.
