VETERAN BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall has made his first Crown Court appearance accused of a string of historic sex offences.

He spoke only to confirm his name in an eight-minute preliminary hearing at Preston Crown Court's Sessions House Grade II listed Edwardian Baroque-style building.

The case was adjourned until April 16 when the defendant is expected to enter formal pleas to the charges.

A provisional trial date of October 2 was set, estimated to last up to four weeks.
