May: Victims of child sexual abuse deserve justice

The victims of child sexual abuse deserve justice from the public inquiry, the prime minister said.

The prime ministers comments come as the inquiry's head Professor Alexis Jay said a "new model" would be needed to investigate the historical child sexual abuse.

Theresa May said: "This is about people who suffered abuse as children who have never found justice... this inquiry is saying we are listening."

She added it is important that we find out why it was allowed to happen and learn from past mistakes.
