The Archbishop of Canterbury, Doctor Rowan Williams, has said that he did too little to prevent the split in the Anglican Church over homosexuality and the ordination of gay clergy.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph ahead of his retirement in December, Dr Williams also revealed that the church is drawing up plans to appoint a presidential figure to share some of the burden of running the worldwide Anglican communion.
