A leading Christian campaigner from Guernsey - who says she was raped by a priest in the 1990s - is calling on others victims to come forward and speak out.

Jayne Ozanne waived her right to anonymity and shared her story on national television.

As a result she suffered years of shame and told ITV News that 'silence is what's kept the problem alive'.

Any allegations of sexual assault are treated with the utmost seriousness. While we would not comment on any specific details we are absolutely committed to making the Church a safer place for all and will always act on any new information relating to allegations.

Spokesperson for the Church's National Safeguarding Team
