Boston BC members have found in a preliminary hearing that suspended chief executive Ian Ward has a case to answer and have appointed an independent arbitrator.

Mr Ward was suspended in September. The council has given no reasons.

'Members decided the matter required further consideration by a committee of inquiry, in other words, that there was a case to answer,' said acting chief executive Mark James.

This is the first case to use an independent arbitrator under the new code for disciplining chief executives, introduced two years ago.

Barrister and Professor of Law Roy Lewis has been appointed from a list of arbitrators provided by conciliation service ACAS.

A cross-party panel of members will consider the case and a hearing is scheduled for 2 February.
