Mystery surrounds the dismissal of a Norfolk academy trust chief executive.
The Norwich-based Engage Trust confirmed on Tuesday that its former chief executive Des Reynolds had been sacked.
It is understood his dismissal in November was on grounds of gross misconduct.
In September Glyn Hambling became interim chief executive of the Drayton-based trust, which runs academies including the Douglas Bader School in Badersfield, Brooklands School in Gorleston, Locksley School in Norwich and Pinetree School in Thetford.
The trust said the decision had been made independently of its board and that a full disciplinary procedure had taken place.
