Catholic Church criticised over support for alleged victims of abuse

The Catholic Church in Scotland has been criticised for the way it handles abuse victims.

Almost five months since BBC Scotland broke the child sex abuse scandal at two prestigious catholic boarding schools, BBC Scotland can reveal that no senior clergy has sought out any of the victims who spoke to the BBC to offer support.

Despite promises from the Church that all that could be done, would be done for the victims - who are former pupils of Fort Augustus and its preparatory school Carlekemp - they have hit out - claiming the church has abandoned them. A Police Scotland investigation into the scandal continues.

BBC Scotland's investigations correspondent Mark Daly reports.
