Stuart Hall investigated over fresh claims

Jailed former BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall is being investigated by Lancashire Police over fresh allegations, police have confirmed.

It follows media reports that Hall, 83, is to be interviewed after one woman accused him of rape and four others alleged he indecently assaulted them.

Hall was jailed for 15 months after admitting 14 indecent assault charges.

The offences, against girls aged between nine and 17, happened between 1967 and 1985.
