The former Bishop of Gloucester Michael Perham has died aged 69.

He "died peacefully at home on Monday evening... following a special Easter weekend with the family", said the current bishop Rachel Treweek.

Bishop Perham was cleared following two allegations of sexual assault in 2014. No further action was taken by the police or Church of England.

His funeral will be in Gloucester Cathedral, a statement said.

The Right Reverend Rachel Treweek, said: "I will always be grateful for Bishop Michael's wisdom, insight and friendship which I first experienced as a member of General Synod."
