The Archbishop of Canterbury will be in Lewisham today to launch measures to tackle homophobic bullying in Church of England schools. Justin Welby recognises what he terms 'particular challenges in this area' and insists pupils must be protected.

The Archbishop explained that the guidance was about "challenging schools to strive towards a deeply accepting environment for all their pupils".
