VETERAN BBC reporter Kate Adie has come to York to speak about the role of Christian women during the First World War.

Adie, who became famous for her reporting from various war zones around the world, gave a lecture at the Minster last night.

She has recently written a book about the way the war changed women’s lives forever, Fighting On The Home Front – The Legacy Of Women In World War One.

Last night’s lecture was in aid of WATCH, which is campaigning to see women take their place alongside men as bishops in the Church of England.
