Clergy told 'review your safety'

Clergy and church workers have been urged to review measures to protect their safety following the stabbing to death of the vicar of Thornbury.

Bristol Diocesan Archdeacon, the Venerable Christine Froude, has written to clergy in the diocese following the killing of the Reverend John Suddards.

It has emerged that Mr Suddards spoke last year of accepting the risks of an open door policy.

Stephen Farrow, 47, is accused of the murder of Mr Suddards.
