The Church of Scotland has suspended one of their ministers after he heckled Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Rev Richard Cameron, of Scotstoun Parish Church, attracted the national spotlight on Wednesday when he confronted Mr Corbyn on a visit to his local area.

He made Islamophobic comments and called the leader of the opposition a "terrorist sympathiser".

Concerns were then raised over Mr Cameron's Twitter profile, including homophobic comments such as: "I don't condemn gays. I hope they repent and turn to Christ. I do however hate what they do, as does God."

The church has said it condemns "Islamaphobia or homophobia" and said they were aware "significant concerns" had been raised.

Today, the church said Mr Cameron would be unable to carry out ministerial duties during his suspension.

A spokesperson said: “In accordance with our procedures, Rev Richard Cameron has been administratively suspended.

"This is to allow us to carry out an enquiry in relation to the incident which took place earlier this week and the subsequent complaints about his social media use.”

At Corbyn’s campaign stop, Mr Cameron shouted: "I thought you would be wearing your Islamic Jihad scarf."

Mr Corbyn did not respond to the comment, but as he turned to walk away, the heckler continued: “Do you think the man that is going to be prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser?”

He went on: “Who is going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you are prime minister?”

Other past tweets from Mr Cameron have included: "The Church of Scotland has announced that its ministers may now 'marry' their gay partners & live in manses with full approval. God help us!"
