Ceremony for new Catholic leader


The new leader of the Roman Catholic church in England and Wales will be formally installed in the role today in a ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.

Archbishop Vincent Nichols is expected to bring renewed vigour to the leadership, especially in its battle against what the church sees as the erosion of Christian values in society.

Robert Pigott reports.
