New Hall allegations emerge ahead of sentence review

New sexual abuse allegations against Stuart Hall come a week after the former presenter's jail sentence was referred to the Court of Appeal for review, following complaints it was too lenient.

Hall was last month sentenced to 15 months in jail after admitting 14 counts of indecent assault, relating to girls aged between nine and 17.

The Attorney General referred the disgraced broadcaster's case after receiving about 150 complaints arguing the sentence was "unduly lenient".

One of the Hall's victims, Susan Harrison, told ITV News she kept the abuse secret for many years for fear of not being believed.
