May 'disappointed' by Butler-Sloss abuse inquiry resignation

Retired judge Baroness Butler-Sloss has stepped down as head of an investigation into child sex abuse saying she was "not the right person" for the job.

Downing Street said "it was entirely her decision" and a new chair would be appointed within days.

Lady Butler-Sloss has been under pressure to quit from MPs and victims.

Home Secretary Theresa May told the Home Affairs committee she was disappointed by the resignation.
