The chair of the Isles of Scilly Council says the suspended head of the main school on the islands has been treated disgracefully. Councillor Mike Hicks says Bryce Wilby has now been given the chance to give his side of the story after his suspension earlier this year.

An investigation into alleged financial irregularites at Five Islands School should be completed by the the middle of next month after Mr Wilby has given his version of events.
