As Baroness Butler-Sloss is appointed to lead a wide-ranging inquiry into sex abuse allegations in Parliament and beyond, child protection experts warn 'powerful people have long been involved.'
Dr Liz Davies said: "Abuse of children is abuse of power and the more powerful people are the more abusive they can be."
ITV's Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen reports:
The Baroness says she did not consider the "difficulties" caused by her background and family connections to the child sex abuse inquiry.
Questions have been raised of former High Court judge Baroness Butler-Sloss since her appointment last week.
22 police officers are now assigned to Operation Fernbridge - the probe into claims of a Westminster cover-up of sex child abuse.
