Churchgoers in Bristol were shocked earlier this week when Simon Waddington burst into St Anne's church in Oldland and shouted at the vicar giving the sermon: "You are a fornicating adulterer."

Rev Martin Parry, a 57-year-old married cleric, exclaimed "How dare you!" at Simon but he was not to be swayed, and told Rev Parry that he had no place leading a service in church. He then explained to the whole church that the vicar had been having sex with his wife.

Simon found out about the affair with his wife Sally after discovering a number of emails sent between the two that outlined their crimes. He had found them after Sally had said she wanted a divorce - the conversation itself being relayed in one of the emails to the randy Reverend. Simon later discovered they planned to run away together.

The pulpit showdown put an end to the affair but also to Simon and Sally's marriage, as Simon said he couldn't continue with her after learning about the vicar. He had earlier tried to salvage the relationship.

The emails were little more than short love messages but explained the extent of their relationship. In one the vicar says: "I shall feel frustrated in church - because I want so much to gather you up in my arms and tell the world around us just how much you mean to me and how much I adore you."

At one point he questions the validity of marriage - not an ideal standpoint for a vicar: "Is a marriage meant to be a cross, a life-long cross dutifully and sacrificially born?" he wrote. He also seemed to like Sally's voice, at least that what we presume following this email: "I will be in touch on phone and then I shall hear your lovely voice - boy, don't it turn me on!!" He hopes Sally isn't "too knackered" another time after a night of passion with her.

Sally meanwhile enjoyed the salaciousness of it all. Signing off each time with kisses and sometimes with love and cuddles, she enjoyed the thrill of the affair, writing one time: "Simon still not home; makes me want to put off facing him till tomorrow, by going to bed early. I was late last night. Ooops he's home now. Better go, for better or for worse, as it were. Love you very much, always, Sally XXX."

It looks as though her ecclesiastical bonking is over though. When confronted in the church by Simon, the reverend ran out the church and hasn't been seen since. The church said it was investigating the situation. ®
