Child abuse charities warn of scandal's impact on victims

Charities have warned about the major impact upon victims of child abuse created by the crisis faced by the BBC.

Pete Saunders, from the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said that the scandal has had some positive effects as more victims have been able to come forward to speak about their past.

However, Mr Saunders also insisted that the coverage has had negative affects, with some victims being labelled as "weird".

He also said it was important that focus was not lost from "the biggest scandal that this country has ever faced".
