The founder of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, Peter Saunders, has welcomed Fiona Woolf’s resignation as chair of an inquiry into historical child sex abuse.

He said Mrs Woolf had “finally done the honourable thing” after calls for her to resign over social links with ex-Home Secretary Lord Brittan.

Peter Saunders said the process to set up the inquiry was “too important to get it wrong again”.
