Disgraced broadcaster Stuart Hall has been cleared of raping two young girls.
He was cleared of 15 counts of rape and four of indecent assault today by a jury at Preston Crown Court but he was convicted of one count of indecent assault.
At the beginning of his trial last week he pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting one of the new complainants when she was aged 13.
The 84-year-old was not guilty of a string of historical allegations involving two under-age girls, dating back to the mid-1970s.
He is currently serving a 30-month jail term after he pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting 13 other young girls, one as young as nine, over a period of nearly 20 years.
