Stuart Hall 'rape victim' not a 'gold-digger', court hears

A woman who claims ex-broadcaster Stuart Hall repeatedly raped her has told a court she was not a "gold-digger" wanting compensation.

The woman sought £20,000 in a civil claim as "a full and final settlement" for the alleged abuse in Hall's BBC dressing room, jurors heard.

She said she was giving evidence at Preston Crown Court because she wanted "justice".

Mr Hall, 84, denies 20 charges of rape and indecent assault from 1976 to 1981.
