Trevor Baylis sexually abused at church

Trevor Baylis, the inventor of the wind-up radio, has revealed that he was sexually abused by a curate at an Anglican church as a child.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House, he described how he thought he had been taking part in a "religious ritual", and called the man responsible for his abuse "absolute scum".

The Catholic church has been hit by revelations of child sex abuse in a number of countries recently, with the Pope apologising to victims of abuse in a pastoral letter to Irish Catholics.
