A couple have been interviewed by police after they were caught by a Catholic priest as they made love near the altar of his church. The 17-year-old boy and a woman of 21 are being reported to the Crown Prosecution Service with a view to charges being brought.

Dyfed-Powys Police say the couple have admitted making love at the Church of Our Lady of the Taper at Cardigan in west Wales. They were found undressed on a dais close to the altar as the priest, Father James Cunnane, was locking up.

Later Fr Cunnane held a Mass to re-bless the church after what he called "an act of sacrilege".
