Archbishop of Canterbury changes account of his involvement with summer camps led by John Smyth


The Archbishop of Canterbury is facing questions tonight over his links to an evangelical Christian under police investigation for beating young men.

Following revelations by this programme four months ago, Justin Welby admitted he had worked with John Smyth at Christian holiday camps, but insisted he had “no contact at all” with the camps after 1978. New evidence now challenges this account.
