The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, has admitted he expects more cases to emerge of child abuse within the Church and that he deals with the issue on a daily basis.

He said it was becoming "clearer and clearer" the problem had not been dealt with properly.

Victims of childhood abuse must now be shown justice and the Church must be "absolutely transparent" about what has gone on in the past, he told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show.

Asked if he was braced for the inquiry to uncover "bad stories", the Archbishop replied: "I would love to say there weren't, but I expect there are. There are in almost every institution in this land.

"This is, it's something I deal with every day and it is becoming clearer and clearer that for many, many years things were not dealt with as they should have been dealt with.
