Bishop Peter Price reflects on a decade's work

The Bishop of Bath and Wells has announced he is to retire from the role after almost 11 years.

The Right Reverend Peter Price said he would step down at the end of June 2013 after one of the "most special" periods of his life.

Bishop Price became a member of the House of Lords in 2008 where he is particularly interested in international aid and foreign affairs.

During his announcement he spoke of his support for the ordination of women.
