Reader letter: Fire chief ‘should get compensation’

Sometimes I find it hard to feel any sympathy for folks on £142,000 a year yet Sean Frayne has been treated disgracefully!

Named and shamed before any trial took place must have put him under terrible stress added to his suspension from his job as Derbyshire’s fire chief albeit on full pay.

Then along comes a six day trial and more stress as many folks will say there is no smoke without fire.

The jury took only ten minutes to find him not guilty and the judge said that it was ‘a true true verdict based on the evidence’.

Even now although the county authorities have lifted his suspension he has still not been given his job back.

What a disgrace and surely he should get some compensation.
