The Rochdale housing association boss whose organization rented out a mold flat to the family of two year old Awaab Ishak’s family has been sacked just one day after he apologised, but dismissed calls to resign.
The group’s board have removed Gareth Swarbrick from his post following the death of two-year-old Awaab Ishak.
In a statement the Grouo said
“Our original instincts were for Gareth to stay on to see the organization through this difficult period and to make the necessary changes, but we all recognize that this is no longer tenable”
A government source said
“It is welcome that Gareth Swarbrick has been removed for his profound failings as RBH CEO, but RBH and their board still have very serious questions to answer. “
