A clergyman is due to appear in court next month after he was charged with defrauding a church in west Suffolk.

Ian Finn, who was arrested at his home address in Haverhill in March, has now been charged with one count of fraud by abuse of position relating to offences committed between June 2007 and March 2014.

The 55-year-old man from Hopton Rise in Haverhill has been released on police bail prior to appearing at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates Court on Tuesday, September 16.
