Ex-BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall has been charged with 16 child sex abuse offences by Lancashire Police.

The offences include 15 counts of rape relating to two girls aged 11 to 16 between 1976 and 1981, as well as one count of indecent assault.

Hall, 83, is currently in prison serving a 30-month sentence for sexual offences.

The former TV presenter is due to appear at Preston Magistrates' Court on 8 November.

The abuse was allegedly committed in Manchester, Stockport, Wilmslow and Sale.

Nazir Afzal, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "Following a careful review, we have decided that there is sufficient evidence to prosecute Stuart Hall for 16 alleged sexual offences against two girls and that it is in the public interest to do so."
