Rev Rose Hudson Wilkin: I'm 'excited' by women bishop vote

The Church of England has voted to allow women to become bishops for first time in its history.

The Church's ruling body, the general synod, voted in favour of changing the rules on Monday evening, after a long day of debating.

It's a huge decision, that means that Church rules that have been in place for thousands of years will be changed.

Rev Rose Hudson Wilkin, chaplain at the House of Commons, says that she's "elated and excited" about the decision.
