The 82-year-old from Wilmslow in Cheshire has been charged following complaints to police about alleged incidents involving three girls aged between nine and 16. Lancashire Police said the offences were alleged to have been committed between 1974 and 1984.Mr Hall has been bailed to appear before Preston magistrates in January. In a broadcasting career spanning five decades, he is perhaps best known for his distinctive style of football reporting on BBC Radio 5 live. Mr Hall was appointed OBE in the 2012 New Year Honours for services to broadcasting and charity.
Let's hope the Police know what they are doing. Lies were told about Lord McAlpine and many will be paying the price for besmirching a man of high repute !
