    This is chichester and else in sw I think http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diocese_of_Chichester In 2011 the Archbishop of Canterbury appointed an enquiry into long-running child protection problems in the diocese. The interim enquiry report found that there had been “an appalling history” over two decades of child protection problems, and many children had suffered hurt and damage. Because of concerns that safeguarding still remained dysfunctional, Lambeth Palace took over the oversight of clergy appointments and the protection of children and vulnerable adults in the diocese.[4][5] Previously Baroness Butler-Sloss had carried out a review of historic child sex abuse problems that had led to the conviction of a priest in 2008.[6]

    On 13 November 2012 two former clergy of the diocese, including the former Bishop of Lewes, Peter Ball, were arrested by police investigating allegations of child sex abuse in the 1980s and 1990s. The arrests followed the submission of reports by a safeguarding consultant from Lambeth Palace to the police.[7]

    On 5 April 2013 Hove Crown Court convicted Michael Mytton and the Revd Keith Wilkie Denford of sexually assaulting boys between 1987 and 1994 when they had been at St John the Evangelist’s Church, Burgess Hill in the Chichester diocese; Mytton as organist and Denford as vicar.[8] St John the Evangelist’s had employed Mytton despite his having been forced to leave a parish in Uckfield in 1981 because he was convicted of committing two acts of gross indecency with a 12-year-old boy.[8][9] Denford was jailed for 18 months and Mytton was given a suspended jail term.[10]

    In July 2013, following a ruling by the General Synod, the Church of England formally apologised for past child abuse and the church’s failure to prevent it.[11]
