The Vatican treasurer and Australia's most senior Catholic figure Cardinal George Pell has been charged with sex offences in Australia.

The charges relate to alleged "historical" incidents, police in the state of Victoria said.

Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said the allegations were made by more than one person.

Cardinal Pell, who is based in the Vatican, has vehemently denied the accusations.

As Vatican treasurer, Cardinal Pell is considered the third-ranking official in the Catholic Church.
