"Oh dear, I've just caught fire" Plymouth vicar has close call during online sermon

The Rev. Stephen Beach had a bit of a shock when delivering his online sermon.

The vicar from St Budeaux Parish Church in Plymouth was recording the video for his parishioners so they could continue their shared worship during the coronavirus outbreak.

But he suddenly caught fire when he sat a little too close to a candle.

Luckily, he stayed calm, simply stating "Oh dear, I've just caught fire" before extinguishing the flames.
