UK: Former Anglican bishop held on suspicion of child abuse

November 17, 2012

The Reverend Peter Ball, 80, a former bishop of Gloucester, was detained by officers from Sussex Police at his home in Somerset. He was held on suspicion of sexual offences committed against eight boys and young men aged from 12 to their early 20s when he was bishop of Lewes.

Another Anglican clergyman, The Reverend Vickery House, 67, was arrested at his home in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, on suspicion of sexual offences against two teenage boys between 1981 and 1983.
