A court has ruled that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough is not solely responsible for paying-out eight milion pounds in compensation to alleged victims of abuse at a former Catholic school near York.
The diocese claimed the Roman Catholic De La Salle Order of Brothers, which it hired to run the school, should share liability.
Keith Porteous Wood, of the National Secular Society, believes that it is wrong that people have had to wait so long for the necessary compensation.
