Northern Ireland appoint archivists to find child abuse records

Three Catholic orders have appointed archivists to search through their historical paperwork for evidence of abuse, following a landmark meeting with survivors.

Cardinal Sean Brady spoke to members of the group Survivors and Victims of Institutional Abuse (SAVIA) for over three hours in Armagh on Monday.

They were seeking assurances that the church would comply fully with the imminent Stormont inquiry into the issue of historical abuse.

The Cardinal said three orders have begun searching through their archives to try and find what evidence they can of alleged abuse within those orders.

Meanwhile the orders themselves have appointed liaison officers to liaise with victims and survivors of abuse.
