The Bishop of Chichester, Martin Warner, confirmed an 80-year-old retired bishop and a 67-year-old retired priest were arrested this morning relating to "allegations of sexual abuse in the 1980s and 1990s".
The bishop said:
We can confirm that the retired bishop has had no ministry in Sussex for many years and no longer lives in this area. The retired priest has had his Permission to Officiate suspended.
Our co-operation with Sussex Police in this investigation continues our ongoing commitment to do all that is necessary to bring any alleged criminal matters to the attention of the public authorities, and to ensure that the Diocese of Chichester is a safe place for all in our church communities, whilst being an unsafe place for any who may seek to abuse them.
