A bishop has set up a website in protest at being arrested after putting his two sons on top of the chimney of his home.

The Most Reverend Jonathan Blake, 52, an archbishop in the Open Episcopal Church, was arrested after neighbours complained he had put his two young boys up the chimney.

The father-of-five insisted the children were safe, and taking part in a school challenge for book week – reading a book in an unusual place.

Neighbours called the police. He was arrested for child neglect.

Mr Blake claims he was punched in the back by a police officer and handcuffed “viciously tight”.

“I have always been a great supporter of the police, but this nightmarish experience has shattered my trust in the police and their system of detention.”

His wife, Annette, 49, who rushed to his aid after hearing his calls for help, was not allowed to video his arrest.

Mr Blake then claims he was kept in police custody without food or water for several hours and was not interviewed until 1pm the following day.
