CWN Editor's Note: New rules of police work in the United Kingdom will allow clergy access to crime scenes, to provide spiritual and emotional comfort.

The revised rules were recommended by a working group that was set up last year, after police were criticized for refusing to allow a Catholic priest to administer the last rites to Sir David Amess, a prominent member of Parliament, when he was fatally attacked.
