A source said yesterday: ‘It all blew up last week when staff couldn’t find the prisoner as all the inmates were being moved back to their cells.

‘They checked the paperwork and saw that he was due to be visiting the chapel.

‘An officer went there but couldn’t find him. A female officer then went to another landing where there are interview rooms and classrooms and she caught him in a clinch with the vicar.’

The priest is believed to be 58 and cannot be named for legal reasons. She was found with the inmate, 46, who was jailed for starting a fire at his ex-girlfriend’s home.

‘She was suspended and the police were called. Obviously she was in a position of trust,’ the source told the Sun on Sunday. The charges have not been made public.

A clergyman at the vicar’s church stood by his colleague, calling her ‘a marvellous priest’. 

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: ‘A member of staff has been suspended pending a police investigation.’
