5 things you might not know about the new Bishop of London
Dame Sarah Mullally was named on Monday as the new Bishop of London. Here are some things you might not know about her.

Research by Premier earlier this year revealed that Bishop Sarah tweets more often than any other bishop with an average 165 tweets sent every month. She was also the runner up for the Premier Digital Conference tweeter of the year.
2. She's a trained nurse
She became Chief Nursing Officer for England in 1999, the youngest person to be appointed to the post. She was also made a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 2005 in recognition of her outstanding contribution to nursing and midwifery.
3. She's only been a bishop since 2015
She was appointed her as the Bishop of Crediton two and a half years ago becoming one of the first women to be appointed to the senior role. Her latest appointment marks a rapid rise within the Church of England.
4. She's familiar with London
She was ordained in 2001 in the capital and served her curacy in St Saviour's Battersea Fields, initially as a self-supporting minister, before leaving her Government post in 2004.
5. She is a novice potter
As is customary with Downing street appointments - the hobbies of a bishop are revealed. Walking normally features highly but pottery was named for Bishop Sarah.
