Veteran broadcaster Stuart Hall will appear at Preston Crown Court today accused of 15 counts of rape on two young girls.
The 83-year-old, of Prestbury Road, Wilmslow, Cheshire, is currently serving a 30-month jail term for sexually abusing 13 victims, one as young as nine, over a period of nearly 20 years.
But after he was jailed earlier this year, new allegations came to light and Hall was charged with more alleged historic sexual offences against two alleged victims aged between 11 or 12 and 16 at the time.
