Man describes childhood abuse by late Dean of Manchester

An inquiry has sharply criticised the Church of England's handling of allegations of child sex abuse against the late Dean of Manchester, Robert Waddington.

Its head, Judge Sally Cahill, said there had been systemic failures by the church in not reporting the sexual abuse, despite several alleged victims from the UK and Australia speaking out 15 years ago.

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has offered a wholehearted apology, as the BBC's Caroline Wyatt reports.
