Wales child abuse: Steve Messham's plea to more victims


The man who wrongly believed a Tory peer sexually abused him says he hopes the controversy will not stop other victims of abuse in north Wales care homes coming forward.

Steve Meesham has told BBC Wales he hopes to apologise in person to Lord McAlpine, who was forced to publicly deny any wrongdoing after a discredited BBC Newsnight report led to him being wrongly accused online.

Tim Rogers reports.
