A teacher who sued his education department on the grounds that his health was damaged by a five-year bullying campaign has been awarded£230,000 in an out-of-court settlement.

The award, made against Neath Port Talbot CBC, is one of the largest ever pay-outs in a bullying case.

Alan Powis, 53, worked at Coedffranc Junior School in Skewen, south Wales, before being dismissed in 1997 for gross misconduct.

He claimed a five-year campaign by head teacher Sheena Ball to undermine him damaged his health and forced him to take a string of menial jobs.

A council spokesman said it was 'disappointed' by the outcome.
