Abuse victim: ‘Baroness Butler-Sloss the wrong person’

A man abused by a paedophile priest in Sussex says Baroness Butler-Sloss is the wrong person to lead an inquiry into how public bodies dealt with allegations of child abuse.

Phil Johnson says she told him she wanted to exclude his allegations of abuse at the hands of a bishop from a public report because she “cared about the church” and “did not want to give the press a bishop”.
Baroness Butler-Sloss has now been asked to look into how the government handled allegations of child abuse by senior politicians in the 1980s and has already faced calls to stand down.
Colin Campbell has this exclusive report.
