Pope Benedict XVI Orders Britain's Top Cardinal To Step Down After Sex Scandal

The leader of Scotland's Roman Catholics was today ordered by the Pope to step down as a fresh sex scandal swept the Church.
Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the 74-year-old Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, was told by Pope Benedict that he must resign now rather than wait until his 75th birthday.

The instruction follows allegations made by three unnamed priests and one former priest who say that they were subjected to 'inappropriate' approaches by the cardinal 30 years ago.
The complaints were made to the Vatican's representative in London early last month - before Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation but after Cardinal O'Brien had made known to Rome that he wished to resign 'in view of his 75th birthday', which falls on March 17.
