What Can We Make Of This Preacherman?


This is a tale you don't hear everyday.

A parish priest has resigned after allegedly giving a drug addict thousands of pounds to buy heroin and crack cocaine.

Father Alan Sharpe was filmed by an undercover documentary team handing over at least £100 a day to the 24-year-old homeless man.

The 69-year-old Anglican vicar denied any wrongdoing after the programme was broadcast last month.
