Justin Welby: Profile of the man set to be Archbishop of Canterbury

Bishop of Durham Justin Welby, a former oil industry worker, is set to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury.

It is thought the 56-year-old will be named as the replacement for Rowan Williams, who steps down in December after 10 years in the post.

Justin Welby turned his back on a successful career in the oil industry to train as an Anglican priest.

Colin Briggs reports on the career of the man poised to be appointed to Lambeth Palace.
