STUART Stuart Hall, 82, the BBC Radio 5 Live sports reporter, has been charged with historic allegations of three counts of indecent assault on girls aged between nine and 16 years old between 1974 and 1984.

During that period, Hall presented the BBC’s regional news show for the North West.

Lancashire police say:

“Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service an 82-year-old man has today been charged with three offences of indecent assault. He has been released without charge on the allegation of rape and a further allegation of indecent assault.”

Mr Hall is on bail. He is scheduled to appear before magistrates in Preston on 7 January.
