A “RAGING” vicar who previously served in the SAS has been banned from the Church of England over abuse and threats to kill his wife.

Reverend Paul Parks had been working as the vicar for St Helen’s with St Barnabas Church in Ore, Hastings.

But he admitted being in breach of Clergy Discipline Measures by a sustained pattern of abuse and assault on his wife Lois, whom he married in 2003.
