New Bishop of Oxford takes House of Lords seat

The new Bishop of Oxford has taken his seat in the House of Lords, in a ceremony full of old English parliamentary tradition.

He took on his new role by swearing the traditional oath of allegiance to the Queen, flanked by the bishops of Southwark and Norwich.
