CoE finds one million pages of documents about child sex abuse

Chichester cathedral
More than a million pages of documents on child sex abuse have been found at just three of the Church of England’s 42 dioceses.

Exaro has learnt that the overarching inquiry into child sex abuse (CSA) demanded last month that the CoE hand over all relevant documents in its possession within 14 days, according to well-placed sources.

It wanted the documents in time for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday on the inquiry's envestigation into the Anglican churches.
