Derbyshire's chief fire officer has been suspended after he was charged with rape.
The county's Fire and Rescue Service said Sean Frayne would be suspended indefinitely while the case was active.
In the meantime, the brigade said deputy chief fire officer Andy Waldie and deputy chief executive Joy Smith would be filling in for him.
Frayne began his career in 1985 at the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, moving to the Derbyshire brigade in 1997.
He has worked in a number of roles including positions in training, station management, performance management, risk management, and corporate services before becoming chief fire officer and chief executive.
A Facebook post for staff said: "The information included names, addresses and bank account details of colleagues. This affects colleagues from all levels of the organisation.
"We are taking this extremely seriously. Dalton Philips is leading the response."
But one person commented on the site: "I haven't been informed of this and shouldn't have to read it on here."
The supermarket said in a statement: "On Thursday March 13 Morrisons was made aware that data from its staff payroll system had been stolen, published on the internet and sent on a disc to a newspaper.
"This data theft included bank account details. Morrisons immediately ensured it was taken off the website.
"Initial investigations suggest that this theft was not the result of an external penetration of our systems. We can confirm there has been no loss of customer data and no colleague will be left financially disadvantaged.
"We have already informed our colleagues about the theft and we are helping them take the appropriate actions to safeguard their personal data."
Morrisons said it was urgently reviewing internal data security measures.
It was working with cybercrime authorities and police to identify the source of the theft and experts had been brought in to ensure staff did not suffer financial losses.
The supermarket has also informed UK banks of the data theft and is working them to help them maintain account security, and it is setting up a helpline for employees.
A Leicester City Council representative has told the High Court that the council has no commonlaw duty to consult about where to reinter the remains of Richard III.
He had added the council was "more than happy" with the university's burial plans, and said it was time to let his remains be reburied in what he called "the beautiful surroundings of Leicester Cathedral".
Struggling supermarket Morrisons suffered a fresh blow today after payroll data relating to thousands of employees, including bank account details, was stolen and published on a website.
It comes a day after Britain's fourth biggest supermarket tumbled to a £176 million annual loss and issued a profits warning, sending shares down by 12%.
Morrisons said police had been informed of the data theft, which affects staff from all levels of the organisation including the board, but would not comment on whether chief executive Dalton Philips was among them.
The supermarket said it became aware of the data theft last night, hours after it announced financial results to the City and that Mr Philips was leading the response.
It wrote to all employees via email to inform them of the data theft, while managers were also informing workers at its sites.
The company posted a Facebook statement, but some staff voiced disquiet that they learned of the breach in this way.
It said: "We are very sorry that this has happened. We will ensure that no colleague will be left financially disadvantaged as a result of this theft."
Morrisons did not say how many of its 130,000 employees were affected.
Etherington said: "Looking back we haven't skied as well as that ever, it was one of our best runs and we pulled back a couple of seconds.
"It was tough, it hurt all the way down. We are really annoyed not to get the gold and it was so close again to Frantceva but we got a medal and we will continue fighting.
"It is crazy, especially as this is my first ever Paralympics and we have had such a bumpy season.
"We only started skiing in August, I broke my ankle and we have had illness, money concerns and everything like that, working out what races to go to to get qualified.
"Hopefully everyone can see from the time that we did fight for it, we didn't just come down to get the silver and we did GB proud."
Powell added: "Jade has definitely reached her peak. Together we have formed a great bond.
"There is great communication between us, it has worked so well throughout the season and we have peaked at the right time.
"We have managed to get four medals and we are so happy with that. We are obviously devastated not to get the gold, but we can't do anything about that."
Former prime minister Tony Blair said:
– Tony Blair
Tony Benn was one of those rare things - a genuine radical for all his life. He was a fearless campaigner and a legendary figure for the Labour movement.
Even when I disagreed with him, I always had enormous respect for his brilliance, his passion and his commitment to the people of Britain and of the world. My thoughts are with his family - with whom he was very close.
