BUXTON’S iconic landmark Corbar Cross has been restored to the skyline.

The Christian landmark was cut down with a chainsaw in protest at the Pope’s visit to Britain last September by a man who claimed to be one of the victims of a sex abuse scandal at a Roman Catholic children’s home in Market Weighton, Yorkshire.

In a letter sent to the Advertiser, the culprit demanded an apology from the Pope and called for an end to secrecy surrounding Catholic clerical abuse.
