Archbishop laments the 'abuse of trust'

The Archbishop of Canterbury has said this year's riots and financial crisis have led to "broken bonds and abused trust" in Britain.

In his Christmas Day sermon, Dr Rowan Williams said: "The most pressing question we now face... is who and where we are as a society."

Riots in August were sparked by the shooting of Mark Duggan by police.

Robert Pigott reports.
