A vicar who took down the trousers of two choir boys and smacked them pleaded guilty at Liverpool to-day to four summonses for assaulting the boys.
He was the Rev. William McMillin Watt, aged 42, Vicar of All Saints, Toxteth Park, Liverpool, and he was fined a total of £20.
Mr. M.A. Reece, pleading for leniency, said the vicar had an excellent record and his acts were due merely to horse-play. There was no suggestion of improper behaviour.
The Bishop of Liverpool, Dr. Clifford Martin, said the vicar had an unblemished character and was highly respected.
