Honestly. I only went on the site to see if there was any update on the Bill Roache case...only to be confronted with this "breaking news".
What is this world really coming to??
Sadly there have always been sexual predators - nothing has really changed, the 1960's were a terrible time, children were not (and still are not always) believed - many people got away with heinous crimes, it is not a modern phenomenon. Often the parents are culpable also - lack of parental care or understanding and believe of their children.
That being said Stuart Hall was always a bit 'out there' - he was our local BBC NW newsreader for years.
