Gay Conversion Therapy

In emails leaked to BBC Look North it's emerged that the Diocese of Sheffield has taken legal advice after a church in the city, which is accused of carrying out gay conversion therapy, has not shared information that the charity Barnardos needs in order to carry out an independent investigation into it.
