Five Anglican bishops quit Church of England for Rome
Five bishops have resigned to join the Roman Catholic Church as an exodus of Anglicans begins.
The five will convert to Roman Catholicism in the first wave of protests over plans to ordain women bishops in the Church of England for the first time.
The Roman Catholic Church backed their move, which was first reported in The Daily Telegraph, and promised a "warm welcome" to all Anglicans who decide to switch allegiance to Rome.
Senior Catholics are finalising plans for the English Ordinariate, a new body created by the Pope to accommodate Anglican converts who cannot accept women bishops.
