Abuse inquiry: Victims have 'powerful motivation' to help

Victims of historical sexual abuse have been urged to come forward and give evidence to an independent inquiry after it opened an office in Wales.

Prof Alexis Jay, the fourth chairwoman of the troubled probe, attended the launch event in Cardiff.

Its "truth project" is being rolled out in Wales, where victims and survivors of abuse can share their experiences.

Alan Collins, a specialist child abuse lawyer of firm Hugh James, said it was a "big ask" for victims to come forward but they have a "powerful motivation" to do so.
