A formal complaint was raised by a member of the college last November, which resulted in Rev Martyn’s suspension.
The tribunal’s ruling to reinstate the Dean was announced on Christ Church’s website on Wednesday.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.
