Child sex abuse inquiry: 'Still very interested in the past'

The chairwoman of the child sex abuse inquiry, Professor Alexis Jay, has said she will not seek "any reduction or restriction" in its scope.

The independent inquiry has been beset by controversies, including the resignation of three of its chairwomen.

Prof Jay said that - although some measures would be taken to speed up the inquiry - it was "still very interested in the past".
