    A five-year inquiry into the sexual abuse of children in Australia has called for sweeping changes to be made.

    These included recommending an end to mandatory celibacy in the Catholic Church.

    The Australian Royal Commission estimates tens of thousands of children have been abused in Australian institutions over the last 90 years.
