Pope accepts resignation of Cardinal after allegations of 'inappropriate behaviour'

Original story-

Three priests and a former priest report the most senior Catholic clergyman in Britain, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, to the Vatican over allegations of inappropriate behaviour stretching back 30 years.

The Observer newspaper says they have demanded his immediate resignation.

The allegations come just days after Cardinal O'Brien called for Catholic priests to be able to marry and have children, saying some struggled with celibacy.

A statement from the Scottish Catholic church said Cardinal O'Brien contested the claims and was taking legal advice.
