Hall rape not dreamt up, says girl

By Kim Pilling

A woman allegedly raped by paedophile broadcaster Stuart Hall when she was 12 has told a jury she did not dream it up.

She said she had a recurrent "nightmare" which would awaken her but it was a memory of what happened to her.

Hall, who was in his 40s at the time, was said to have forced his tongue in her mouth and repeatedly told her "You're special" as he raped her.

Hall has already pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting her when she was 13, but has pleaded not guilty to 20 allegations of rape and indecent assault between 1976 and 1981 against two young girls.

The alleged victim, Girl B, told Preston Crown Court that she chose to keep that assault and the earlier alleged rape a secret as she visited two BBC studios in Manchester where Hall is said to have raped her again up to the age of 15.

The case continues.
