Bristol priest loses faith in police after assault response

A parish priest has lost faith in police who he said failed to investigate when he was injured in a violent assault on church grounds.

Father Colin Mason, of Sacred Heart Church in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, was attacked by four men who fractured his eye socket on 20 August.

While initially helpful, Avon and Somerset Police “did nothing” to investigate the case, he said.
