A CHURCH investigation into the conduct of disgraced former Co-Op Bank boss Paul Flowers is still continuing.

Flowers was convicted of possessing drugs including crystal meth and ketamine in May this year after he pleaded guilty to three charges against him.

He was fined £400 and ordered to pay £125 in prosecution costs and a victim surcharge.

After he was sentenced, the Methodist Church revealed it would start its own internal investigation.

A Church spokesman confirmed the investigation was still ongoing and it was taking place on a confidential basis.

Flowers, a former minister for Wibsey, is indefinitely suspended from the Bradford South Methodist Circuit until the Church completes its probe.

He has already written to Church leaders seeking retirement from his post, that could be refused on the grounds that any formal procedures should be completed first.
