An official in the shrine village of Walsingham has been suspended from his job.
Peter Lane has been bursar at the Anglican shrine for almost 10 years, and his job involves organising accommodation for pilgrims and the financial management of the shrine.
The Times has discovered that he has been suspended for several weeks, and no reason has been given, although shrine administrator Fr Philip North stressed there was no question of any financial impropriety or any police involvement.
Shrine spokesman Rob Marshall said it was a confidential matter between the shrine and its employee and there would be no further comment at this stage.

Mr Lane, who lives at Walsingham with his family, took over the job in May 1998 after replacing Stanley Smith, who had retired after nearly 40 years in the post.
