Veteran British broadcaster Stuart Hall has pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting an underage girl.

The 84 year old is accused of 15 rapes and six sex abuse offences against two young females between 1976 and 1981 in Manchester and Cheshire, England.

He admitted one of the indecent assault charges during a hearing at Preston Crown Court, England on Tuesday (06May14). The offence relates to a girl under the age of 16 and took place in 1978.

Hall denies the other 20 charges and is due to stand trial on Wednesday (07May14).
