General Synod to discuss plans for women bishops

The Church of England's ruling body, the General Synod, is to discuss legislation on women bishops this week.

It will consider a proposal that women bishops should accept intervention in their dioceses by male alternatives if called in by traditionalist parishes.

Anglican women clergy attended a rally in Westminster, supporting plans to introduce women bishops.

Robert Piggott reports.
