Shelterbox - a charity in crisis?

The second-in-command at the Cornish charity Shelterbox, has resigned just weeks after its founder was controversially sacked.

Lasse Petersen told staff the dismissal of Mr Henderson marked a sad day for the charity. Our Cornwall Correspondent Steve Hardy reports.

Today Shelterbox said that, as Mr Henderson is appealing the decision to sack him, it is unable to comment further. It did say that it hopes that the appeal process will start some time next week.

Shelterbox did add that it was its understanding that Lasse Petersen's resignation had nothing to do with Tom Henderson's dismissal.
