12:06pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
FATHER Francis Davidson has resigned from his role as monastic superior of the Benedictine college St Benet's Hall, Oxford.
It follows allegations that he failed to act on reports of sexual abuse that were made during his time at the Catholic Fort August Abbey School in the Scottish Highlands in the 1970s where he was headmaster.
Last night it emerged that he'd quit his position at the Hall in St Giles where he was responsible for the welfare of students monks at Oxford University.
