The Dean of Salisbury: Women bishops vote 'good for Church'

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

A previous vote in 2012 was backed by the Houses of Bishops and Clergy but blocked by traditionalist lay members.

The Dean of Salisbury, the Very Reverend June Osborne, said it was good for the Church of England and a good day for the country.
