The Bishop of Bath & Wells, who was installed at Wells Cathedral in June, has welcomed the vote by the Church of England's governing body, the General Synod, to allow women to become bishops.
Bishops Peter Hancock and Peter Maurice, the Bishop of Taunton, say they are delighted at the news, especially as the last vote caused so much damage to what people thought of the church. The legislation will now go before Parliament and could become law in November.
