HENSHAW RESIGNS OVER PENSION PENALTY

Liverpool City council chief executive Sir David Henshaw is leaving his post in March, following a troubled year that saw the departure of leader Mike Storey after he wrote insulting e-mails about Sir David.

'It's well known that the new government rules on pensions will severely penalise me if I stay with the council after [31 March], and that is why I have made this decision,' Sir David said, adding that effective

political and managerial leadership had seen Liverpool move 'from being a failing authority to one which is succeeding'.

Sir David joined Liverpool from Knowsley MBC in 1999 and worked closely with Mr Storey (Lib Dem) until tensions boiled over following disputes over his pension, the Merseytram project, and relations between officers and senior councillors (LGC, 27 October).

Leader Warren Bradley (Lib Dem) has restored Mr Storey to the cabinet with a roving brief over major projects and officers' performance.
