Councillors in north east Wales are to hold talks to discuss their response to the Welsh secretary's intervention in the controversy over an unpublished report into child abuse, reports BBC Radio Wales.

William Hague says he regrets that the report in its present form cannot be published for legal reasons and because of inaccuracies.

He says Flintshire CC should now try to find a way of making the document public.

According to The Western Mail (p1), Mr Hague has requested that the successor authorities to Clywd 'make a final and full version of the report available to the prosecuting authorities so that they can consider whether it contains sufficient grounds to justify reopening investigations'.
