Veteran BBC presenter Stuart Hall admits sex offences

Veteran BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall pleaded guilty to sex offences yesterday, the latest British TV star from the 1970s and 1980s to be embroiled in abuse allegations. Hall, 83, who was best known for hosting the family TV show It's a Knockout and was still working for the BBC as a soccer radio commentator until recently, admitted 14 counts of indecent offences against young girls over two decades, with the youngest victim aged just nine.
