Video: Belfast teen's shocking foul-mouthed ‘play’ in church caught on camera

A teenager last night apologised and denied he was mocking the Catholic Church after shocking footage appeared on the internet of him swearing while standing at an altar.

The video shows a youth behind the altar of St Joseph’s Chapel at Hannahstown on the outskirts of west Belfast where he appears to be mocking a part of the Mass when clergy sometimes sing words ahead of communion.

The boy then speaks into a mobile phone and swears and makes disparaging comments about a bride, as though he was conducting a wedding ceremony.
