The Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Tom Butler, will not face disciplinary action over a mysterious incident that allegedly took place in Crucifix Lane last December.
A statement issued by Lambeth Palace on Monday confirmed that the Archbishop of Canterbury had ordered an investigation into the incident – which reportedly took place outside Suchard Free House in Crucifix Lane near London Bridge – under the Church of England's new clergy discipline procedure.
The statement continued: "In the light of all the evidence submitted to him Dr Williams has determined ... that no further action should be taken."
