Update 08/02/19:

The Abbot of Ealing Abbey Dom Martin Shipperlee last week resigned over a failure to investigate child abuse allegations. His departure came immediately after he appeared before the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, answering questions about how he handled allegations of sexual abuse against monks and teachers at Ealing Abbey and St Benedict’s School dating back decades.
