Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the top Catholic official in Britain, is stepping down a day after publication of reports of “inappropriate” behaviour in his relations with priests working for him, the BBC reported on Monday.

O'Brien, an outspoken critic of gay rights, is alleged to have made unwelcome advances against priests reporting to him.

Today's report stated that the Vatican was expected to announce that Pope Benedict XVI had accepted O'Brien's resignation. - Sapa-dpa
