Child sex abuse: Councils, churches and 'certain people' to be investigated

The judge leading the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse has announced the names of a number of councils which will be scrutinised, along with the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Church.

Justice Lowell Goddard said the inquiry will focus on whether public bodies and other non-state institutions succeeded in their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse in England and Wales.
