The Attorney General has decided to refer veteran BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall's sentence to the Court of Appeal for review after more than 150 people complained to his office.
A spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office said:
Having carefully reviewed this case, the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, has decided to refer the sentence of Stuart Hall to the Court of Appeal for review
The case will in due course be heard by three Court of Appeal judges who will decide whether or not the sentence is unduly lenient and whether they should increase the sentence.
