A district auditor has strongly criticised Derbyshire CC following a six-year investigation into the council's recruitment advertising policy.

The inquiry began in 1990 after Times Newspapers took legal action to overturn a decision by the council to switch advertising from the Times Educational Supplement to The Guardian.

The judge ruled that the council's decision was unlawful. Derbyshire was left with a £130,000 bill for the action and extra advertising costs.

District auditor Keith Stanton said there was no wilful misconduct behind the losses.

Derbyshire said most of the people criticised in the report had now left the council.
