Stuart Hall: More Allegations Made Against Former Manchester Presenter
15 July 2013, 10:37
Police have confirmed they've received more allegations of sexual abuse against former TV presenter Stuart Hall.
The 83-year-old, who presented the BBC's regional news programme from Manchester during the 1960s and 70s, was sentenced to 15 months in June for indecently assaulting 13 girls, aged between 9 and 17.
That sentence has been referred to the Court of Appeal following complaints that it was 'undluly lenient.'
Lancashire Police have not revealed how many new allegations have been made to them about Hall.
In a statement they told Capital: "We can confirm that we have received further allegations against Mr Hall and we are working closely with the Crown Prosecution Service to determine the most appropriate course of action.
"We take all allegations of sexual abuse seriously and we would encourage people with any information about sexual abuse or who has been a victim of sexual abuse to come forward and report their concerns confident in the knowledge it will be investigated appropriately and with sensitivity."
