Details of a dispute between the chief executive of Camden LBC and his deputy have been revealed in The Times (p6) after a high court judge quashed a 'gagging order' on the press.

The council had successfully applied for an order barring parties to an industrial tribunal, due to start next month, from being identified by the press until the tribunal had made a final decision.

The Times reports that yesterday Mr Justice Keene ruled that the tribunal decison was irrational, perverse and was an unnecessary interference with the freedom of the press.
