Riddle of Polish priest's disappearance
Priest with bible
Father Borynski's disappearance is unravelled
The mysterious disappearance of a Catholic priest who was the chaplain to Bradford's Polish community in the 1950s is set to be unravelled on Monday.

Father Henry Borynski vanished in 1953 and now a retired detective, who has investigated the case, says he was murdered after being snatched off the street by Polish Secret Police - with the help of a fellow priest.

In the BBC's Inside Out programme at 19.30GMT Monday ex-chief superintendent Bob Taylor claims that a clerical colleague of Fr Boynski, Canon Matynellis, was involved with communist agents in setting up the abduction.

No trace of Fr Borynski, who disappeared at the height of the Cold War, has ever been found and he left all his personal possessions behind.
