Retired judge Baroness Butler-Sloss has stepped down as head of an inquiry into child sex abuse saying she was "not the right person" for the job.

She had been under pressure to quit from MPs and victims concerned about her family links.

Her late brother, Sir Michael Havers, was attorney general in the 1980s.

James Landale reports.
