A former student of Holy Family Primary School at Doveton has given graphic and disturbing evidence against notorious paedophile priest Peter Searson.

The abuse started in the 1980s when Julie Stewart was aged 5, she told the Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse by the Catholic clergy on Wednesday.

It started when the priest asked her to sit on his knee in the church’s confessional.

But as you will hear in graphic detail below, the abuse became much worse.
