Footage seems to show the Rev Stennett Kirby, a vicar in East London snorting cocaine and saying: 'I'm a very happy man'.

The 64-year-old priest was seen sitting on a sofa with a friend and apparently watching porn and talking about escorts, according to ‘The Sun’

Mr Kirby is the vicar of West Ham Parish Church in Stratford and has held the position since 2007.  The video reportedly shows him lighting up a pipe and separately snorting powdered cocaine.

Prostitute

He is said to have talked about paying for a female escort, saying: 'I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I've only got £10 left.'

Mr Kirby also apparently discussed buying the legal drug poppers on a visit to Soho in central London.

At a service this morning, the Rev Stephen Chandler, an associate minister at the church, broke the news to the congregation.

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

Investigation

'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.'
