Vicar to face child porn charges

Vicar to face child porn charges
A Staffordshire vicar has been charged with 16 counts of making indecent photographs of a child.

The Diocese of Lichfield said Rev Dominic Stone, of Marchington, Staffordshire, had been suspended from duty earlier this year.

Mr Stone was the team vicar of Marchington, Marchington Woodlands, Kingstone and Leigh.

Staffordshire Police said a 46-year-old man had been charged and would appear in court on 10 November.

Mr Stone has been released on bail and will appear at Burton-on-Tent Magistrates' Court.
