The woman who introduced Section 28 has said she's sorry if anyone was hurt by it

Baroness Knight, the woman largely responsible for introducing Section 28, has said she is sorry if the law hurt anyone.

She told Newsnight that her intention had been the "wellbeing of children" and that if it had not turned out that way then she was sorry.

Section 28 was a clause of a local government act, to stop a council promoting the teaching of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship.

No one was successfully prosecuted under the act.
