Jehovah's Witnesses criticised over handling of sex abuse

A woman who was sexually abused by a Jehovah's Witness elder as a child has criticised the way the church handled her complaints.

Karen Morgan said elders should have acted to stop the abuse when she first reported it and wants the way it deals with allegations investigated.

Mark Sewell, 53, was jailed for 14 years for abusing women and girls at his Barry congregation.

A Jehovah's Witnesses spokesman said it takes sex abuse claims very seriously.

Caroline Evans reports.
