Archbishop: Pope will not resign


The Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols says the Pope will not resign over the paedophile priests scandal.

The Most Reverend Vincent Nichols told Andrew Marr that child abuse was "the most-hidden crime" following a slew of reports of sexual misconduct with minors by members of the Roman Catholic church.

The allegations in Ireland, Germany, Holland and the USA, have been compounded by accusations of mishandled and unclear investigations by Church authorities up to, and including, the Vatican.
