CofE accused of conducting cover up


The Church of England has been accused of conducting a cover up over allegations that it drugged girls in one of its children's homes in the 1970s and 1980s. An investigation by Today reporter Angus Stickler reveals that a senior member of staff accessed and removed files from archives - despite assurances that he did not do so. The Church has also deliberately withheld documents from one former resident. Last month the BBC revealed that girls who were heavily drugged in the home have gone on to have children with birth defects.
