Sick man's fears over pay-out
EAST HULL: A man who was abused at an East Yorkshire boys' care home fears he will die before his compensation is paid by the Catholic church.
Robert Maxwell, 62, who was awarded £53,600, was diagnosed with a rare terminal lung cancer a week ago.
He was a victim of sickening sexual and physical abuse at the Catholic Church-run St William's Community Care Home in Market Weighton.
But the Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough has appealed after being found liable last year for the abuse of 158 former pupils.

Mr Maxwell, of New Earswick, near York, has been given just months to live, but the Supreme Court will not rule on the case until July.
He told the Mail: "The church owes me £53,600, which I was awarded by the courts, but I am unlikely to see a penny."
