Former BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall has pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 16, but denies a string of other sex offence allegations.

Hall, 84, of Wilmslow, Cheshire, pleaded not guilty at Preston Crown Court to seven counts of rape against one alleged victim between 1976 and 1978. Five of them were alleged to have taken place when the women was under 16.

He is also accused of eight counts of rape against a second alleged victim between 1976 and 1981, with one alleged rape occurring when the complaint was under the age of 13.

In addition, Hall is also accused of four counts of indecent assault on both the alleged victims within the same time period.

The former It's a Knockout presenter is due to stand trial at Preston Crown Court to face the remaining charges.

Hall is serving a 30-month jail term after admitting to indecently assaulting 13 girls as young as nine between 1967 and 1986.

The latest accusations were brought against him after he was sentenced for the previous charges.

Hall was best known for his distinctive commentating style and was a broadcaster for 50 years.

In December 2011 he was awarded an OBE in the Queen's New Year Honours list for services to broadcasting and charity.
