Stuart Hall: Rape Charge For BBC Presenter
BBC presenter Stuart Hall has been charged with further sexual offences - including an alleged rape.
The 83-year-old veteran broadcaster was arrested on Tuesday after attending a Cheshire police station.
The Radio 5 Live football presenter was charged with 14 offences of sexual assault involving 10 girls aged between nine and 16 between 1967 and 1986.
He is also accused of raping a 22-year-old woman in 1976.
In December, Hall was charged with three counts of indecent assault against young girls in the 1970s and 80s. He denied these three charges at a court hearing earlier this month.
Following the latest charges he was bailed to appear before magistrates in Preston on February 7.
Hall, of Wilmslow, Cheshire, has worked for more than a half century in British broadcasting and was awarded an OBE in this year's New Years Honours.
He presented the It's A Knockout show in the 1970s.
The BBC has previously said he would not be working at the corporation while he is facing allegations.
