The Bishop of Chelmsford suspended the Rev Canon David Tudor, 63, who is currently assisting Surrey police in connection with alleged claims reported to them going back to the 1980s.

In 2006, the Basildon Canvey Southend Echo reported that Castle Point MP Bob Spink called for the removal of David Tudor after learning Tudor was jailed for six months in 1988 for indecently assaulting three girls aged 13 to 15.

Tudor served his prison sentence, minus remission, but an appeal Court hearing quashed the convictions ruling them "unsafe and unsatisfactory". The convictions were overturned on appeal and Tudor was freed.

These allegations were made while David Tudor was chaplain at St Bede's School in Redhill, Surrey. He later became curate of St Philip's Church in Reigate. In a separate case Tudor admitted having sex with a girl but insisted she was 16.

Until he was suspended by the Bishop of Chelmsford in April 2019, Tudor was based at St Nicholas Church in the Anglican Parish Church of Canvey Island, where he was appointed as Rector of Canvey in 2006. In 2008 he was appointed area Dean of Hadleigh.
