Radio 5 Live this morning Saturday Breakfast 6.00 am

A victim of the Bishop Peter Ball told 5 live Breakfast that he forgives him for the sexual abuse he suffered.

The Reverend Graham Sawyer, a vicar in Burnley, described Peter Ball as “a monster” but feels that “justice has been done” and he is able to forgive him.

“Not only do I forgive Peter Ball but I forgive him from my heart. I refuse to become part of this cycle of unpleasantness and nastiness. The only response is one of forgiveness and love”.

Reverend Sawyer received a handwritten letter from the Archbishop of Canterbury apologising unreservedly for the abuse he endured.

This week 83-year-old Peter Ball was sentenced to 32 months for misconduct in public office and 15 months for indecent assaults, to run concurrently. The Church of England said there were “no excuses”.
