An order to senior bishops to end all contact with a victim of clerical sexual abuse came from an insurance company that was established “to protect the Anglican Church”, The Times can disclose.

The instruction was given by the Ecclesiastical Insurance Group (EIG), which was set up in the 19th century to insure the Church of England and states on its website that it remains “committed to doing this today”.
