Victims of church-related abuse asked to come forward

Victims and survivors of church-related abuse are being asked to come forward as part of a safeguarding review across all 42 dioceses in the Church of England.

In Rochester this is the second time the second time it's been carried out, to ensure that all concerns about clergy and church staff have been reported, assessed, and acted upon.

Last week the church's governing body voted to offer victims and survivors redress, in a move that could cost millions of pounds. Tony Green reports.
