Police told of priests' fears.

THE leader of the Catholic church in Scotland has told police that many priests are living in fear from sectarian violence and crime.

In a sermon heard by Strathclyde chief constable Willie Rae, Archbishop Mario Conti said drugs and alcohol played a major part in the violence and threats.

At a memorial service for fallen police heroes in Glasgow yesterday, he said: "There are many parishioners who are afraid to go out at night and many others, including priests themselves."
