BREAKING NEWS: Exit for council chief investigated for alleged misconduct

THE DEPUTY chief executive at West Lindsey District Council who was suspended for alleged gross misconduct is no longer working for the authority.

A WLDC spokesman has confirmed £80,000-a-year Adrian McCormick – who was responsible for the authority’s finances – no longer works for the council.

The spokesman said: “Adrian McCormick no longer works for West Lindsey District Council. I cannot make any further comment.”

Despite opposition from councillors, high-earner Mr McCormick joined the council last January in an attempt by West Lindsey to cut spending on consultants and save taxpayers’ money.

He was suspended on full pay in January while an investigation into his alleged misconduct took place.
