Former Catholic Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson has died aged 70.

Archbishop of Brisbane Mark Coleridge said on Twitter that Emeritus Archbishop Wilson had died unexpectedly on Sunday afternoon.

In 2018, Archbishop Wilson became the highest-ranking Catholic in the world to be convicted with concealing child sex abuse.

That conviction led him to resign but it was later quashed on appeal, with a court finding there were doubts the archbishop had been told about the abuse.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference said Emeritus Archbishop Wilson had also served as the Bishop of Wollongong and as the president of the bishops’ conference.

More to come.
