The Very Reverend Martin Thrower was brought into custody and charged with the offences on Tuesday, Suffolk Police said.

The 55-year-old, of Church Street, Hadleigh, is rector of Hadleigh, Layham and Shelley.

He was initially arrested in Ipswich on suspicion of voyeurism on August 4.

He was interviewed and bailed, then formally charged on November 15, following an investigation.

He is due to appear at Ipswich Magistrates' Court on Monday, December 19.
