From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Ex-pupils to take diocese to court for sex abuse
Tuesday 26th January 2016
The claims by pupils at a church school in north-west England mirror those in the recent film Spotlight, nominated for six awards at the Oscars for its real-life depiction of similar allegations in the Catholic Church in Boston, US, in the 1980s.
Lawyers acting on behalf of the British victims, who were aged between 11 and 15 at the time of the abuse, said they hoped that the positivity met upon Spotlight’s release will help give other victims the strength to come forward and make allegations.
“I hope society is moving in the right direction and the film can only help that,” said AO Advocated child abuse lawyer Thomas Beale.
“In our clients’ case, knowing there are other people suffering in the same way gave them strength to come forward.”
