Women bishops vote 'could go either way'

The Church of England's governing general synod is due to vote on whether to allow women to become bishops.

A plan paving the way for consecrations from 2014 is expected to be backed by bishops and clergy, but the vote among lay members could be much closer.

The Reverend Sally Hitchiner, Senior Chaplain at Brunel University, said she hoped the vote would go through, but added that it could go either way.
