The 15-month sentence given to Stuart Hall over child sex offences has been referred to the Court of Appeal following complaints that it was too lenient.

The disgraced BBC broadcaster was jailed after pleading guilty to indecently assaulting 13 girls as young as nine between 1967 and 1986.

More than 150 people complained about the sentence handed to the former It’s A Knock-out presenter to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO).

Only one person needs to request that a sentence be reviewed to trigger the process.
