Ceremony to confirm new Archbishop of Canterbury

The former Bishop of Durham becomes the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury at St Paul's Cathedral on Monday.

Right Reverend Justin Welby succeeds Rowan Williams, who stepped down at the end of December.

The event is usually just a legal ceremony but the new leader of the Church of England has asked for it to be transformed into a special church service too.

Robert Piggott reports.
