An audit investigation into the finances of the Isles of Scilly school has concluded.

Head teacher Bryce Wilby, 46, was suspended in May over "apparent financial irregularities" at Five Islands School.

Cornwall Council, which carried out the audit, said "all matters of significance" had been reported to the Isles of Scilly Council (ISC).

The report is due to be discussed by the ISC on 27 September.

Mr Wilby was suspended from the ISC-run school after a complaint by a whistleblower. Auditors at Cornwall Council were asked to investigate.

Mr Wilby has denied any wrongdoing.

Cornwall Council said in a statement: "The investigation has now been completed and all matters of significance have been reported to the Isle of Scilly Council.

"Any questions in relation to the investigation are a matter for the Isles of Scilly Council."

ISC chairman Mike Hicks said he had not yet seen the auditors' report, which would be made public.
