Meeting over jailed former priest


A meeting will be held today to investigate the way the catholic church dealt with concerns about a former priest in Norfolk who’s been jailed for child abuse.

Father Anthony McSweeney was sentenced on Friday for abusing a boy at a care home in London.

The church will meet police and other local authorities to look into why McSweeney was moved from a parish in Essex to one in Norwich in 1999 after his cleaner found indecent videos of teenage boys at his home.
