Church of England 'hijacked' for pro-EU cathedral service featuring prayers for Britain to stay in Europe

'The Church of England was at the centre of an extraordinary row last night over claims it is being used to stop Britain leaving the European Union.
Prayers for Britain to stay in the EU forming part of a Brussels-backed event to mark the 40th anniversary of the UK joining the Common Market are to be said in a service at Salisbury Cathedral.
The event next month is being held in Salisbury because it was the home of the late Sir Edward Heath, the Prime Minister who took the UK into what is now the EU in 1973. Leading pro-Europeans will attend.'
