Wrexham councillor Malcolm King social work claim sacking

A senior councillor has been sacked from Wrexham council's executive board after making allegations about a child protection team.

Malcolm King, who was lead member for finance, raised concerns about staff levels and case loads at the council's child and family assessment team.

Council leader Neil Rogers said an investigation had found "little or no evidence" to support the 16 allegations.

He said the claims were having a "negative impact on staff".

Mr King, who had also been responsible for policy and governance, made 16 allegations about staff levels, case loads and the pressure faced by social workers.

He stands by his comments and said his removal is against the council's own whistle-blowing policy.
