Highlights of the Pope's UK visit


The Pope has returned to Rome after his four-day visit to the UK during which hundreds of thousands of people attended events and gatherings.

During the trip, Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out about what he called the "marginalisation" of Christianity and the march of "aggressive secularism" and has apologised for the abuse of children by Catholic priests.

The pontiff's visit began in Scotland and included numerous public events including Mass at Westminster cathedral and the beatification of Cardinal Newman in Birmingham.
