Church of England set to make child abuse apology

The Church of England is expected to make a formal apology for past child abuse by Anglican priests, and its own "serious failure" to prevent it.

The ruling General Synod, meeting in York, will debate a report about abuse in the Chichester Diocese.

Members will be asked to back an earlier apology issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

Andrew Verity reports.
