A disgraced presenter is facing five new allegations of abuse – including the rape of a 12-year-old girl, it emerged last night.
The alleged rape by the popular BBC presenter, Stuart Hall, is said to have taken place two decades ago after the shamed star met the girl through some relatives.
Police are investigating the allegation along with four other claims concerning sexual assaults.
In May, Hall, 83, admitted sexually abusing 13 girls, including one as young as nine, between 1967 and 1985.
He was jailed last month at Preston Crown Court but to the fury of victims and justice campaigners, he was sentenced to just 15 months’ imprisonment, of which he will serve half – meaning barely two weeks inside for each victim.
The new allegations – involving a rape – could spark a fresh wave of protests concerning his sentence.
