Pope Benedict XVI said Thursday the Catholic Church had dropped its guard on paedophilia and had failed to deal with the issue quickly enough, as he began an historic state visit to Britain. The 83-year-old landed at Edinburgh airport before being driven to meet Queen Elizabeth II at the start of the first state visit by a pope to Britain since King Henry VIII broke with the Catholic church in Rome in 1534 and founded the Church of England. Duration: 00:51.
