New archbishop is badgered at zoo

Bishop of Durham Justin Welby

Bishop of Durham Justin Welby

NEWLY-installed Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is yet to meet members of his Scottish flock but he already has some devoted followers in Scotland.

The Archbishop was gifted sponsorship of a pair of Edinburgh Zoo rock badgers or rock hyraxes by his Liverpool Cathedral congregation last year after he took a fit of the giggles in the pulpit when referencing the small animals. He also has a replica mounted on his crozier.
