Abuse inquiry: Nigel Havers defends Butler-Sloss appointment

There have been calls for Baroness Butler-Sloss, who has been chosen by the home secretary to head the inquiry into allegations of historical abuse, to step down.

Labour's Simon Danczuk said her position was tainted because her late brother, Sir Michael Havers, was Attorney General in the 1980s.

Sir Michael's son, the actor Nigel Havers, said he could see no reason why his aunt should not continue to lead the inquiry.
