Abuse inquiry: Victims call for inquiry head Woolf to quit

Victims' groups are expected to tell child abuse inquiry officials Fiona Woolf should step down as its head.

One victims' representative told the BBC he had "zero confidence" in the inquiry, which he said - in its current form - would be a "whitewash".

The first person appointed to lead the child abuse inquiry - Baroness Butler-Sloss - stepped down in July.

The Home Office said Mrs Woolf had shown a commitment to openness, and that it remained confident in her.

Chris Mason reports.
