Convicted paedophile Stuart Hall was cleared by a jury today of a string of rapes and sexual assaults.

Hall, 84, made no reaction as he was convicted of one indecent assault but cleared of 15 rapes and four other indecent assaults by a jury of eight women and four men.

At the start of the trial he had pleaded guilty to one other count of indecent assault.

The former BBC broadcaster mouthed ‘Thank you’ to the jury at Preston Crown Court at the end of the two-week trial as he was led away to the cells to continue serving his sentence for earlier offences.
