A vicar in the Church of England, East London is under investigation after he was reportedly caught on camera inhaling cocaine, watching porn and discussing about prostitutes with a friend.

According to The Sun, a video footage that has gone viral showed Rev Stennett Kirby sitting in a sofa allegedly taking the hard drug and not only watching the pornographic material, but also expressing his desire to patronize an escort if he had money.

The 64-year-old Rev Stennett Kirby who has been a vicar of West Ham Parish Church in Stratford since 2007 is quoted as saying in the video footage that, “I'm a very happy man”.

In the video, the Reverend Minister apparently got turned on by the porn and fervently expressed eagerness to hire a prostitute if he had the means.

“I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I've only got £10 left,” Rev Stennett Kirby said to his friend in the video.

Following an article published about the conduct of the man of God, an associate minister at the church, Rev Stephen Chandler had no choices, but to disclose the news to the entire congregation on Sunday.

“By now many of you may have heard of an article which has appeared online today concerning your vicar, the Revd Stennett Kirby.

“I am trying to support Stennett pastorally at this demanding time for him and he is very much in my prayers and Bishop Stephen's [of Chelmsford], as are you all here at All Saints.

“The article contains serious allegations with regard to drug taking and other matters of an ethical nature.

“These allegations will now be investigated by the archdeacon,” Rev Stephen Chandler revealed to the church.

Some members of the church The Sun spoke to expressed surprise, saying “Everyone is very shocked.”

Meanwhile, the Church of England has vowed to investigate the matter with all seriousness and probably take appropriate actions.
