Islington Council has confirmed it is investigating allegations that confidential documents were leaked to the Islington Tribune. The weekly newspaper reports today the documents were left on the doorsteps of its office earlier this year and that they contained accusations against Islington's former head of equalitities Vernal Scott. The Tribune said Scott was given a £100,000 pay off after being suspended for six months. Reporters from the paper have been questioned by the council officer leading the inquiry, which the council claims follows a complaint from a member of the public.
