The rector for Haverhill and Withersfield has been arrested for fraud and suspended by the Church of England.

Revd Canon Ian Finn, 55, had been placed on ‘Extended Bishop’s leave’ last month and did not take the service at St Mary the Virgin Church in the Market Square on February 16 after ‘financial irregularities’ came to light.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “A 55 year old man from Haverhill who was arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation on Tuesday (March 4), and taken to the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre (PIC) for questioning, has been bailed to return to Bury PIC on April 2 pending further enquiries.”
