Labour has said it "welcomes" the decision by the Court of Appeal judges to double ex-BBC presenter Stuart Hall's sentence for indecently assaulting girls as young as nine:
We called for this review because the courts must take a consistently tough approach to sentencing child abusers.
It is very important for victims to know they will be taken seriously and that it is worth while coming forward because we need them to help ensure that these abusive manipulative men are brought to justice and are given the punishment they deserve.
