Baroness Butler-Sloss on abuse inquiry controversy

Baroness Butler-Sloss says she agreed to chair an inquiry into historical child abuse because she felt it was her duty and that she was "quite able to be independent and say that people had got it wrong and to be critical of them".

She later stood down from the role, under pressure to quit from MPs and victims concerned about her family links.

Baroness Butler-Sloss was the guest editor of the Today programme on Wednesday.
