8 July 2014 Last updated at 08:26 BST

Home Secretary Theresa May has appointed the head of the NSPCC, Peter Wanless, to lead an investigation into the handling of documents relating to claims of a paedophile ring at Westminster in the 1980s.

She also announced a wide-ranging, Hillsborough-style inquiry into historic child sex abuse claims, "to consider whether public bodies and other non-state institutions have taken seriously their duty of care to protect children".
