Child sex abuse probe not working, survivors warn after senior lawyer quits
The national probe into child sex abuse will not work in its current form, a key group representing victims and survivors has warned.
The Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse was thrown into disarray on Thursday after the resignation of its senior lawyer, prompting calls for it to be broken up.
C hairwoman Professor Alexis Jay said she had accepted Ben Emmerson QC's decision to step down from the post of senior counsel after two years.
The development was labelled a "disaster" for the problematic inquiry that has been blighted by resignations and is on its fourth chairwoman.
