A VICAR has been charged with 26 voyeurism and indecent image offences.

The Reverend Richard Lee, the vicar at St Augustine’s Church in Locking and St Mary’s Church in Hutton, will appear before magistrates charged with eight voyeurism offences.

The 49-year-old, who officiated at the churches with his wife, the Rev Anne Lee, has also been charged with 18 offences of making indecent images.

He will appear at North Somerset Magistrate’s Court on February 11.

He was first arrested last July.
