Evidence has emerged that the Anglican Church in Britain failed to alert police about a senior member of the clergy who's alleged to have abused children in both the Britain and Australia.

Anglican Priest Reverend Robert Waddington was principal of a school in North Queensland in 1960s.

He went on to become the Dean of Manchester, but he died five years ago.

Allegations of abuse reached the Anglican Church in England in the late 1990s - but no action was taken.

The diocese of North Queensland has begun its own investigation but it seems crucial documents may have been lost.
