One of four men who made claims against Cardinal Keith O'Brien in the days before he resigned said he went public despite being warned he could damage the Catholic Church's reputation.

The former priest and three current priests complained to the Pope's representative to Britain, Archbishop Antonio Mennini, in early February about the Cardinal's alleged inappropriate behaviour.

Cardinal O'Brien contests the claims against him.

Catherine Deveney is the journalist who reported allegations of inappropriate behaviour against Cardinal Keith O'Brien.
