Hundreds of child abuse victims in the North are demanding a full inquiry into the mistreatment they suffered in institutions run by the Catholic Church and the State.

The victims are seeking an investigation similar to that which led to the publication of the Ryan Report in the Republic earlier this year.

Solicitor Joe Rice says he has written to the First and Deputy First Ministers, as well as Northern Secretary Shaun Woodward, to demand an inquiry into sexual, physical and emotional abuse dating back to the 1940s.

He says the abuse was widespread and endemic at a range of institutions run by the Catholic Church and the State.
