Cardinal Keith O'Brien faces Vatican sexual conduct inquiry

The Vatican is to hold an inquiry after Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the former head of the Catholic Church in Scotland, admitted sexual misconduct.

Cardinal O'Brien resigned shortly after four men accused him of "inappropriate behaviour".

The scandal comes as Roman Catholic cardinals have started a week of closed-door meetings in Rome before choosing the next Pope.

Allan Little reports from Rome.
