Bishop to step down at the end of the month

The Bishop of Lewes Wallace Benn announced yesterday (Thursday) he is to retire at the end of October.

The bishop, who lives in Eastbourne, is at the centre of criticism over safeguarding at churches across Eastbourne and there were also calls for his immediate suspension in the summer by social services chiefs concerned over the safety of children.
