‘If necessary I’ll be arrested’: the lockdown defying priest

In this episode of Holy Smoke, Fr David Palmer, a Catholic priest from Nottingham, tells Damian Thompson that his church will be open this Sunday, cleverly exploiting a loophole in the government guidelines. If the police try to stop him saying Mass, or administering any other sacrament, then he’s willing to be arrested. Other clergy, including some in the Church of England, have taken the same decision.
