Dean of Jersey suspended
It's after an inquiry into his handling of an abusive behaviour complaint by a parishioner.
The Dean of Jersey has been suspended following an inquiry into his handling of an abusive behaviour complaint by a parishioner.
The Diocese of Winchester's Safeguarding Panel has raised concerns that Very Revd Robert Key failed to comply with important safeguarding procedures. An investigation has now been ordered which has the backing of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Archbishop Justin Welby said: "The Bishop of Winchester's swift, decisive and wholly necessary actions following his receipt of this report are to be commended.
"I too wish to add my own personal apologies to the young woman who was so badly let down by those she had turned to for help and I wholeheartedly support the investigation that the Bishop has launched. "He must receive full cooperation from all involved.
"We cannot place a high enough importance on safeguarding issues and it is vital that lessons are learned from this case, not just in Jersey but throughout the whole of the Church of England.
"Every day, the vulnerable come to us for shelter, for support and for comfort. Their trust cannot be taken for granted."
