Victim of priest's sex abuse speaks out

A victim of Anglican priest Canon Gordon Rideout, who was jailed for abusing children in the 1960s and 70s, has spoken out about the effect his actions had on her.

Inge Beeson waived her anonymity to speak about the abuse she suffered when she was a member of a choir he ran at a military base in Hampshire.

Rideout, 74, from Polegate, East Sussex was jailed for 10 years after being found guilty of 36 separate sex offences by a jury at Lewes Crown Court last week.
