years in the 1960s and 70s, Francis Paul Cullen was the priest here. He

:01:16.:01:26.

was a trusted member of the community, presiding over weddings,

:01:27.:01:29.

confirmations and funerals. But all that time he hid a dark secret. He

:01:30.:01:35.

was a sexual predator who preyed on young boys and girls from his

:01:36.:01:38.

congregation here and at Buxton and Nottingham. This afternoon, as he

compensation claims. Coming up, we'll hear how he was finally caught

:01:58.:02:01.

after years on the run and I'll be talking to a group which offers

:02:02.:02:05.

support to those abused by members of the clergy, but first, reaction

:02:06.:02:14.

to his conviction from the police. Although Father Cullen comes across

:02:15.:02:19.

in court as a frail and elderly men, we need to consider the length of

:02:20.:02:26.

time that he offended for and the age of the victims and how

:02:27.:02:30.

vulnerable they were and how he abused his position of trust, and

:02:31.:02:35.

today is, as you said, a degree of closure for those victims, and I am

:02:36.:02:40.

just happy for them. Mike O'Sullivan was in court today.

:02:41.:02:45.

Here's his report on how Cullen was a life`long abuser of children.

:02:46.:02:55.

A predatory priests, Father Cullen I've used the seven young victims

:02:56.:03:02.

over 34 years. Today he pled guilty to 21 offences at parishes in three

:03:03.:03:11.

different cities. The sexual abuse of any person, particularly an

:03:12.:03:16.

innocent child, is absolute evil and cannot be justified. One word that

:03:17.:03:21.

springs to mind would be abhorrent. Looking at the position that he

:03:22.:03:23.

held, it 0 Looking at the position that he

:03:24.:03:29.

held, it was a position of trust in relation to these seven

:03:30.:03:33.

complainants, and he clearly has abused its position. Father Cullen

:03:34.:03:41.

was ordained in 1953 in Birmingham. He came to Kirby in the 1950s to

:03:42.:03:45.

prepare the way for this church, Christ the King. Into the 1970s, he

:03:46.:03:52.

abused for altar boys, some as young as six, abusing son into their

:03:53.:03:59.

mid`teenage years. He helped the community here to build his church

:04:00.:04:03.

and was the Paris priest `` preparers preached for 18 years. We

:04:04.:04:10.

were told he was a charismatic priest. In 1978, he was the parish

:04:11.:04:16.

priest at one charge for nine years. The abuse continued. He targeted a

:04:17.:04:22.

young girl and a teenage girl. The point of the parish he was pictured

:04:23.:04:28.

with Bob Geldof in the 1980s. He retired on the grounds of ill health

:04:29.:04:30.

in October of 0 retired on the grounds of ill health

:04:31.:04:33.

in October of 1987, returning to Ireland. Just under a year later, he

:04:34.:04:38.

said he was well enough to come back, this time as parish priest at

:04:39.:04:43.

Saint Mary's in Nottingham. He abused and 11`year`old altar boy. In

:04:44.:04:48.

September of 1991, he retired for the second time on the grounds of

:04:49.:04:53.

ill health. A month later, he faced sex abuse charges relating to a

:04:54.:04:59.

previous church and jumped bail. The diocese of Nottingham said it knew

:05:00.:05:03.

nothing of abuse allegations before that case. Some people might say

:05:04.:05:07.

there must have been a cover`up at the time and he was just moved

:05:08.:05:12.

around to the tricks of the problem that way. All I can say is that I

:05:13.:05:16.

have seen no evidence of a cover`up because I have the new evidence that

:05:17.:05:21.

his abusive behaviour was reported to the Bishop at the time. The

:05:22.:05:26.

police say they cannot verify a claim by one Derby victim from the

:05:27.:05:30.

early 1960s that his family did reports the abuse to the church, but

:05:31.:05:35.

they can say that Father Cullen was extradited last year after 0

they can say that Father Cullen was extradited last year after 22 years

on the run thanks to information from the diocese of Nottingham. They

:05:42.:05:47.

were instrumental in helping the police locate Father Cullen in

:05:48.:05:51.

Tenerife. That has helped us to obtain the European arrest warrant

:05:52.:05:55.

that has enabled us to bring him back to the country. Three of the

:05:56.:05:59.

victims are making civil compensation claims against the

:06:00.:06:03.

diocese, and the church is resuming its own inquiry into the career of

:06:04.:06:07.

Father Cullen, an inquiry that will report back to the skin in a few

:06:08.:06:15.

months. `` the Vatican. Mike told me 0

:06:16.:06:16.

months. `` the Vatican. Mike told me earlier he spoke to one

:06:17.:06:19.

mother of altar boys who knew Cullen. She said she felt betrayed

:06:20.:06:25.

and was in tears outside the court. This is all know about the victims

:06:26.:06:29.

of the abuse. I little earlier I spoke to a communications officer

:06:30.:06:34.

for the Catholic Church who was in Rome. I asked him what his reaction

:06:35.:06:44.

was. I am pleased that the has taken responsibility for his offences and

:06:45.:06:47.

that he has pleaded guilty to those offences today and that he is

:06:48.:06:53.

awaiting sentencing. And I hope the verdict will bring some peace to the

:06:54.:07:00.

people who have been abused over the years. These people have suffered

:07:01.:07:04.

and it is important that their voices are heard after many years,

and it is thanks 0 voices are heard after many years,

:07:06.:07:08.

and it is thanks to their bravery that Cullen has pleaded guilty

:07:09.:07:12.

today. We will do our best to help all victims of abuse when they come

:07:13.:07:16.

to us, and I would hope that anybody who has been abused I anybody will

:07:17.:07:20.

come forward, because child abuse is an absolutely evil thing, and I hope

:07:21.:07:26.

that all of those who have been abused I anybody whether it is from

:07:27.:07:33.

the church or any other aspect of society will come forward to the

:07:34.:07:36.

police so they can receive the help they need to come to terms with what

:07:37.:07:39.

has happened to them and help ring their perpetrators to justice.

Minister and Clergy Sexual Abuse Survivors and John Ashfield, the

:07:51.:07:53.

chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council at Christ the King, who knew

:07:54.:07:56.

Father Cullen. What was he like? He was a? Young

:07:57.:08:01.

priest to was helping to set up this parish, and he did that with the

:08:02.:08:05.

help of the people of Mackworth. Any indication at all of the dark side

:08:06.:08:09.

of his personality and life? None at all. Were you surprised? Surprised

:08:10.:08:17.

and horrified. Thank you very much. You are a member of a support group

:08:18.:08:21.

to help people who have been abused by members of the clergy. The

:08:22.:08:24.

Catholic Church in particular has come in for a lot of criticism over

:08:25.:08:28.

allegations of child abuse. Is it getting better at admitting what's

:08:29.:08:30.

been going on? Certainly improving in terms of the words that they put

:08:31.:08:33.

out. I would like to see more action. We have spent years

:08:34.:08:38.

campaigning to try and improve transparency within the Catholic

:08:39.:08:44.

Church, but still they rely on secret courts, secret internal

:08:45.:08:47.

courts, where bishops take all the decisions on and of this type are

:08:48.:08:52.

kept from the police. There will be an inquiry which will go to the

:08:53.:08:57.

Vatican. Do you have any hope Mister Mark I am always optimistic things

:08:58.:09:04.

can't `` hope? I am always optimistic. Actions speak louder

:09:05.:09:12.

than words. How important is a day like today to the people who have

:09:13.:09:18.

been abused? It is really significant to have justice seem to

:09:19.:09:22.

be done, and you can imagine that lots of people, possibly some is

:09:23.:09:26.

still out there who have not yet come forward, will have been

:09:27.:09:29.

dreading this day and wondering whether it would ever come. Thank

:09:30.:09:39.

you very much indeed. Now, as we've heard, Cullen was on the run for

:09:40.:09:43.

more than 20 years. It seems he spent all of that time on Tenerife

:09:44.:09:45.

in the Canary 0 spent all of that time on Tenerife

:09:46.:09:46.

in the Canary Islands. He was even in an area packed with

:09:47.:09:49.

holiday`makers from the East Midlands. And this programme has

:09:50.:09:52.

also found a priest over there who says Cullen confided in him that

:09:53.:09:56.

he'd been a priest back in Britain. Well, our reporter Simon Hare

:09:57.:09:59.

travelled to Tenerife to see where Cullen had been hiding all along in

:10:00.:10:05.

plain sight. Holiday`makers come here to escape

:10:06.:10:12.

the British winter. Cullen came here to escape British justice for more

:10:13.:10:17.

than two decades. In the busy resorts here, apartments in which he

:10:18.:10:26.

spent most of his years living in a modest one`bedroom. He ended up

:10:27.:10:31.

leaving over a debt of 9000 euros for unpaid community fees. He had

:10:32.:10:38.

earned a living by running errands for a local shop. He told some

:10:39.:10:41.

people he had been an architect in Australia, but he had an altogether

:10:42.:10:49.

more truthful account with a man of the same fate. The parish priest

:10:50.:10:54.

says that Cullen used to visit his church regularly to pray and then

:10:55.:10:58.

when they came a partial confession. Perhaps two years ago, he told me

:10:59.:11:03.

that he was a priest. I was surprised, because I had seen him

:11:04.:11:10.

before, just a normal person for many years, and then suddenly he was

:11:11.:11:16.

a priest. He appeared here and suddenly disappeared. That is

:11:17.:11:23.

because last August he was arrested while visiting mass at this church

:11:24.:11:27.

in a neighboring resort. The priest in charge here had recognised him as

:11:28.:11:36.

a wanted man after an appeal for information had originated from the

:11:37.:11:39.

Catholic Church back in Britain. Do you fear he could have offended

:11:40.:11:43.

while he was here? Did he have access to children? He had no access

:11:44.:11:49.

to children, no. It appears he used his real name while in Tenerife, and

:11:50.:11:57.

he did not attempt to hide. This man is 0 0

:11:58.:11:57.

he did not attempt to hide. This man is originally from Derbyshire, and

:11:58.:12:05.

now runs a bar, and he says that Cullen would easily have blended

:12:06.:12:10.

in. It does not surprise me that he would blend in 0

:12:11.:12:11.

in. It does not surprise me that he would blend in because there are so

:12:12.:12:13.

many people walking up and down the streets. It seems a long length of

:12:14.:12:19.

time, I must admit. Before he was originally arrested and charged in

:12:20.:12:23.

1991, he was already known to be a regular visitor here at Tenerife,

:12:24.:12:28.

which only raises the question, should he have been caught much

:12:29.:12:36.

sooner? For now, 0

:12:37.:12:36.

sooner? For now, that's 0 0

:12:37.:12:36.

Derby. Time for us to head back to Dominic in the studio for a round`up

:12:45.:12:53.

of the rest of the day's news. A heart surgeon who unwittingly

:12:54.:12:56.

passed on an infection which killed five people is fighting to stop his

:12:57.:13:00.

future patients having to be told of the tragedy. John Lu hasn't

:13:01.:13:02.

performed operations at Nottingham City Hospital for over four years

:13:03.:13:11.

following the deaths. He's accused his employers, Nottingham's NHS

:13:12.:13:14.

hospitals of blocking, his career. The landmark test case is being

:13:15.:13:18.

heard in the High Court in London. Our health correspondent Rob Sissons

:13:19.:13:21.

was at today's hearing and joins us now. Rob, Mr Lu also wants

:13:22.:13:26.

compensation from the health trust? That is right. If the trust loses

:13:27.:13:28.

this case, 0 That is right. If the trust loses

:13:29.:13:31.

this case, they will end up with a very big legal bill, and John Lu

:13:32.:13:34.

also wants to go back to work, but in two weeks of the hearing

:13:35.:13:42.

finishing if he winds. He is seen here arriving at an earlier hearing.

He passed on an inspection to patients, and somehow it got into

the heart valves of 0 patients, and somehow it got into

:13:54.:13:54.

the heart valves of the patients, as we know with very tragic results.

:13:55.:13:58.

NHS bosses, though, see it differently? They see this as an

:13:59.:14:05.

important test case on how much patients should be told. His legal

:14:06.:14:10.

team argued that this was not his fault and he is now clear of the

:14:11.:14:15.

infection and that patients should not need to know about what has gone

:14:16.:14:22.

on in the past. The trust says it is inclusive how the infection got

:14:23.:14:25.

through to the patient and they need to be protected and given

:14:26.:14:28.

information to make informed choices. The cast `` case is due to

our neighborhoods. Bombs were dropped, killing and injuring

:16:39.:16:45.

civilians and flattening buildings. Thousands of men severely injured on

:16:46.:16:47.

the front lines in France were treated in makeshift hospitals

:16:48.:16:54.

here. Hundreds died at this one. After the war, they build a

:16:55.:16:59.

university on this site as a living memorial to the dead. Stately homes

:17:00.:17:05.

found new use as well. This one is now home to a motorcycle company,

:17:06.:17:10.

and back then it was a prisoner of war camp for captured German

:17:11.:17:14.

officers. We start our look at the East Midlands at war with the story

:17:15.:17:21.

of one captain, a flying ace whose exploits captured the public

:17:22.:17:33.

imagination. A field in France, but it is English

:17:34.:17:40.

soil. Albert crashed at his spot `` for this spot. He was alive when a

:17:41.:17:49.

teenage girl raised for help. She pulled him out of the aircraft. She

:17:50.:17:55.

nursed him, and it is said that he looked at her with his eyes and

:17:56.:18:03.

smiled and just died. Albert Ball is remembered here in Nottingham high
