Orkney Islands Council assistant social work director Heather Pritchard has been suspended while an investigation is carried out into a complaint against her department, reports The Scotsman (p2).

Ms Pritchard was suspended following a complaint from a member of the public.

A spokesman told the paper: 'the complaint relates to the section which she heads. We have a set complaints procedure which we have to follow.

'It is not council policy to comment in detail on staffing matters. However the council can state that Ms Pritchard has been suspended while a formal complaint against the community social services department is investigated.'
