A RETIRED priest, Canon Gordon Rideout, has been re-arrested in connection with four new allegations of child sex-abuse.
He was arrested in March at his home in Eastbourne, Sussex, on suspicion of sexual assaults committed against nine young people in Sussex, London, and Hampshire, between 1965 and 1972. He was later bailed (News, 9 March). Last week, he was arrested again in connection with four more allegations.
Another former priest, Robert Coles from Eastbourne, is also being investigated.
