A REPORT investigating claims that Royal Grammar School headmaster Tim Dingle took drugs has now been published.

Governors at the school in Amersham Road, High Wycombe, have received the document which was conducted by an independent investigation team and will look at the findings.

The investigation began in February after the publication of an article in The Daily Mail.

In the article, a woman claiming to be a former lover of Mr Dingle said that he snorted cocaine at parties and smoked cann-abis he confiscated from pupils at the school.

Andrew Higginson, chairman of the Royal Grammar School's Board of Governors, said: "I have received the report from the independent investigation team and will carry out a full analysis of the findings.

"This process is ongoing and we are continuing to follow the recommended procedure of disciplinary action.

"Mr Dingle is still being asked to stay away from the school while we do this."

Mr Dingle strenuously denied the allegations in a statement published on the school's website.
