  • The Vatican is investigating allegations of a “sex party” said to have taken place at a British cathedral during a COVID lockdown, according to a report.
  • The Sunday Times says the claims are being looked at as part of an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the resignation of Robert Byrne, the former bishop of Hexham and Newcastle who stood down last month.
  • There is no suggestion that Byrne attended or was aware of the alleged rule-breaking event inside a property adjoining St. Mary’s Cathedral in Newcastle in northeastern England.
