Stuart Hall jail term doubled by Court of Appeal

Former BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall's 15-month sentence for a series of indecent assaults has been doubled by the Court of Appeal.

Increasing the term to 30 months, Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge said the original term had been "unduly lenient" given the impact on Hall's victims.

Hall, of Wilmslow, Cheshire, admitted 14 counts against girls aged from nine to 17 between 1967 and 1985 in June.

Allan Collins, is a partner at Pannone Solicitors, who are representing 17 of the victims.
