More than 100 vicars, archdeacons, deans and lay clergy within the The Diocese of Truro have voted to approve the introduction of women bishops.

The vast majority of the diocesan synod voted in favour and this decision will now join  the views of 43 other dioceses at the Church of England's General Synod in July.

Any legislation would need to go to Parliament to be approved, however Bishop Tim Thornton said that there were still people that were "very anxious" about the proposals and that a majority was not certain.
