ShelterBox founder gives first interview since sacking

The founder of ShelterBox has spoken in public for the first time since he was controversially sacked from the Cornish charity.

Tom Henderson was accused by ShelterBox of trying to place an order with a firm which had links to his son, without telling the charity's board.
