Stuart Hall's indecent assault sentence to be reviewed

The sentence given to broadcaster Stuart Hall over his convictions for sexual abuse will be reviewed following complaints he "got off lightly".

Hall, 83, received a 15-month jail sentence in June after admitting 14 offences against girls aged nine to 17 between 1967 and 1985.

The Attorney General has referred the sentence to the Court of Appeal for review.

The BBC's Clive Coleman said; "a very large number of people referred the sentence to the office of the Attorney General".
