Convicted paedophile Stuart Hall mouthed the words 'thank you' to the jury at Preston Crown Court after he was cleared of a string of rapes and sexual assaults.
Hall, 84, was convicted of one indecent assault but cleared of 15 rapes and four other indecent assaults by a jury of eight women and four men.
After the verdicts, he was led away to the cells to continue serving his sentence for earlier offences.
